How to Model Trees with Porous Media — Pedestrian Wind Comfort with SimScale
In this webinar, we will introduce one of SimScale’s newest feature: porous media for LBM and Pedestrian Wind Comfort analysis. We will present this advanced feature by discussing its meaning, explaining why it is important for urban flow simulation, describing how it can be used, and demonstrate by simulating the effects of different types of trees on the flow patterns, ultimately mitigating undesired wind effects.
We will then show how we can easily set this feature within the SimScale and walk through a couple of projects where this feature is useful in providing greater accuracy, validity, and detail to desired results.
No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar.

With a mechanical design background, Arnaud has worked for 6 years on design performance optimization with CFD and FEA tools. He is currently part of the SimScale team and is involved in simulation projects for multiple industries, with a focus on architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC).
“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.
