Wind Comfort in Urban Areas

CFD for wind comfort and safety in urban areas

About this Webinar

With the complexity of modern urban areas, the pedestrian wind environment analysis becomes a critical factor in urban planning design, that helps to ensure the overall well-being, safety and comfort in pedestrian zones. Predicting and properly assessing the airflow around a building is a difficult and expensive process when using the experimental approach. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques are a practical, cost-efficient, and time-efficient alternative to the field measurements or tunnel tests.

This joined webinar between two leading companies in CFD for wind engineering  — SimScale and Meteodyn — will give you the chance to gain a deeper understanding of how numerical simulation can be leveraged for the prediction and the assessment of pedestrian wind environment at the design stage.
