New Solar Radiation Modeling Features in SimScale
Solar radiation has a significant impact on the indoor and outdoor thermal comfort of buildings and cities. SimScale has released a new feature that allows architects and engineers to model the impact of their solar shading systems and heat gains directly through cloud-based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. Using SimScale, engineers can benefit from more accurate thermal comfort predictions, as well as the ability to visualize solar heat loads on the inside and outside of building models. Join our live, 30-minute demonstration to learn how to use the new solar radiation modeling features within SimScale.
Expert instructors will guide the demonstration in an interactive environment that allows for discussion and Q&A.
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.

“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 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.
