About this Workshop

Rising energy prices, environmental consciousness, and the associated demand for energy efficiency and human comfort are key considerations in the design of modern buildings and urban planning.  

The usage of fluid flow simulation (CFD) enables architects and engineers to predict and optimize the performance of buildings in the early stage of the design process. While simulation is already widely used in mechanical engineering, its adoption in architecture and construction is low, due to the lack of knowledge and affordable tools.

SimScale joined forces with McNeel and Vind-Vind to create a free online training about the application of simulation in AEC, tailored to the needs of architects and civil engineers. By participating, you will:

  • Understand the fundamentals and potential of CFD for AEC applications
  • Learn how to integrate simulation with your CAD/BIM process and data
  • Receive a certification of achievement by submitting voluntary homework assignments

There is no prior knowledge or software required to join this free webinar. All participants will get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features.

Wind Comfort Prediction with CFD

November 23rd 2017 6:00 P.M. CET / 12:00 ET

With the complexity of modern urban areas, the pedestrian wind environment analysis becomes a critical factor in urban and building planning design, helping to ensure the overall well-being, safety, and comfort in pedestrian zones. During this webinar, you will learn the physical fundamentals of wind comfort, the related standards and guidelines, as well as how to properly model terrain, atmosphere, and surroundings in order to create a simulation on your own.

Wind Load Prediction with CFD

November 30th 2017 4:00 P.M. CET / 10:00 ET

Wind load is one of the main concerns in construction codes. In addition to gravitational loads, earthquakes, and other factors, wind gusts-induced loads can cause failure in structures. During this lecture, you will get introduced to safety-related aspects of facade dimensioning and related standards and how to identify the right type of load case based on simulation.

Air Conditioning and Ventilation

December 7th 2017 4:00 P.M. CET / 09:00 ET

Human comfort in homes, office spaces, and buildings, in general, is one of the most important goals in building design and HVAC. Therefore, one of the current engineering challenges for building engineers is the adequate design of ventilation for maximum comfort and energy efficiency. During this lecture, you will learn about the fundamentals of heating and ventilation process modeling.
