Industrial Simulation Virtual Workshop
March 9, 2021
Design Buildings Faster by Harnessing the Power of the Cloud
March 9, 2021
Our guest speaker, Jeroen Janssen, Associate Director at Thornton Tomasetti leads the CORE Studio R&D Team. Mr. Janssen shares insight on how his team developed an in-house digital wind tunnel app by integrating SimScale with Grasshopper to accelerate their building design processes.
Thornton Tomasetti applies scientific and engineering principles to solve the world’s challenges — starting with their customers. Whether they are focusing on the design, construction, and performance of buildings or expanding into new disciplines, Thornton Tomasetti never limits themselves, applying their expertise to all types of projects across a range of industries.

No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar. All participants can get access to SimScale with all the required simulation features by creating a Community account on our website. If you are unable to attend the live session, we would still encourage you to register to receive the recording.
Jeroen is an Associate Director and is leading the CORE studio team in London. CORE is Thornton Tomasetti’s Research and Development incubator, enabling collaboration with project teams and industry colleagues to drive change and innovation. Jeroen particularly focuses on the design of microclimates for urban spaces. During the early stages of a design, in-house developed digital models of wind simulations and solar and thermal radiation are used to analyze complex urban scenarios on master planning scale or at the level of individual development, thus ensuring comfortable spaces from the outset of the architectural design process
Co-Founder & Product Manager
As one of five co-founders, Anatol started work on the backend and infrastructure of SimScale while studying Computer Science at TU Munich and Georgia Tech. Today, with SimScale being both on a sound technological footing and a successful business, Anatol is the Product Manager for SimScale's API to ensure customers’ needs are understood, addressed, and met.
“The SimScale platform has allowed us to develop and test scenarios including ventilation flow paths and understanding the dynamics between building fabric, airtightness, window natural ventilation design, and CO2 concentrations in various utilisation scenarios. The platform has given us quality, visually digestible output to inform decision making and to compare results against our monitored data from our extensive post-occupancy studies. Working with SimScale has allowed us to study our learning spaces in a way we never have before. It has helped inform us on which design strategies may provide the biggest impact on performance. The visual outputs have real value, not just in terms of informing our decision-making, but potentially in communicating how classrooms can work and feel to clients and stakeholders.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for simulation. By providing instant access to (CFD) and (FEA) to over 200,000 users, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly cloud application accessible via a subscription-based pricing model.
