SimScale is a 100% cloud-based CAE software for wind engineering that lets you test, validate, and optimize your designs through CFD, FEA and thermal analysis.
Wind engineering is the science that combines fluid mechanics with wind and thermal comfort to ensure safe and qualitative living conditions for humans. Due to the complexity of urban areas and the modern architectural designs, a high performance tool to evaluate design’s performance is very important.
SimScale provides you with a cutting-edge CAE tool that allows you to evaluate your design in an easy and efficient way using cloud technology, for CFD, FEA, thermal and particle analysis, by eliminating all the barriers of traditional simulation software. No expensive hardware, licenses or maintenance are required.
With SimScale you will be able to predict the reality without running any physical tests, for different scenarios and applications in wind engineering — from pedestrian wind comfort or wind load on buildings to pollution control and thermal comfort.
Pedestrian Wind Comfort
With the complexity of modern urban areas, pedestrian wind environment simulations become a critical factor in urban design, helping 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.
Wind Loads on Buildings
A windy day can create a serious phenomenon on tall buildings, bridges and towers. Predicting the performance of constructions in advance will ensure the people’s comfort and safety. This is why an accurate and robust tool is required to evaluate the wind and structural effects. SimScale comes with a multi-discipline package to give you the chance to evaluate not only the flow over the constructions, but also the bending and the twisting phenomenon on the structures.
The pollution of air or water can create dangerous problems on the safety of humans. Predicting and assessing the path of factories exhausts and discharges in the rivers, plays a vital role when it comes to wind engineering. Finding a solution that gives accurate results can be challenging in such applications, where this is highly required. SimScale focuses on high accuracy and our engineers and constantly creating validations to compare them with experimental data.
Thermal comfort in public spaces such as stadiums, theaters, schools or in private spaces like houses, apartment buildings or garages is an essential factor in ensuring good living conditions. SimScale offers a full simulation package to perform CFD, FEA or thermal analyses and optimize your design for a comfortable modern life, everything only using a web browser.
To reduce energy consumption, finding a creative idea for ventilation without using any mechanical systems can be very beneficial, from both the ecological and economical perpesctives. SimScale provides you with a sophisticated tool to optimize natural ventilation systems and understand the behavior of your design before creating any physical prototypes.
I have used a lot of simulation packages over the past 25 years, including Nastran, Ansys, SolidWorks, and a whole host of others. I have been using SimScale for about nine months now and it has become my goto simulation tool. It allows me to run models larger than I have ever conceived on my own workstation.
