SimScale to IES for Building Simulation
September 9, 2020
In this collaborative webinar with Greenlite, we will discuss how CFD can be employed to calculate accurate wind pressure coefficients on a high rise residential building, and then imported into IES and thermal modelling software tools for more realistic ventilation and overheating studies.
The webinar will highlight the key differences between thermal modelling and CFD, and explain how they can be used together to optimize building performance early in the design stage, as well as for compliance calculations such as TM59.
No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar. If you are unable to attend the live session, we would still encourage you to register in order to receive the recording.
Experienced in CFD and engineering design, Darren studied Aerospace Engineering at Brunel University and is a part of the application engineering team at SimScale.

Greenlite Building Physics help design teams achieve thermally comfortable, energy-efficient buildings. To do this, we use detailed computational models. A significant proportion of our work involves establishing suitable balances between operational energy demand, thermal comfort and capital expenditure. Our design inputs help design teams evaluate risks, design out problems and optimise their design strategy. Services include summertime overheating risk assessments, HVAC systems sizing calculations, daylight modelling and building regulations compliance.
“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“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.”
With offices in Boston and Munich, SimScale is the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation. By providing instant access to computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application only available to experts in large companies to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
