Industrial Simulation Virtual Workshop
Digital Innovations in the Design of Sustainable Buildings and Structures
Our guest speakers, Eugene Cullity and Ben Bleckly, both Sciences Engineers from Mott MacDonald showcase the value of using cloud-based CFD to engineer innovative solutions for sustainable buildings, stadiums, and other structures. The presentation will focus on high-value projects where simulation is critical to the design and performance of major buildings. Case studies will include:
1) a stadium where pitch/field health and wind comfort are modeled, and
2) a simulation of ventilation and comfort in large transit structures like airports and subway stations.
Mott MacDonald is a global engineering, management, and development consultancy. Learn more here.
Having studied engineering and physics at the University of Adelaide, Ben joined Mott MacDonald to advance their wind engineering and CFD capabilities. He has worked on projects both in Australia and globally (including UK, Europe, Asia, and North America) providing CFD solutions to a wide range of applications.
Based in Adelaide, Australia, Eugene is a Building Sciences Engineer and CFD specialist who works with designers and clients to improve building performance, enable materials savings, and facilitate design optimization. Experience includes pedestrian wind comfort, wind loading, thermal comfort, and pollution dispersion applications.
“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.
