Ingrid Cloud is a real time saver, and allows me to focus on what really matter, result analysis and design optimization.
Angelo Martucci, Building Energy Modeler and Consultant
This level of refinement and accuracy, I’ve never reached before through digital simulations.
Paul Rogers, Architect and Climate Specialist
Complex structures need more than standard building codes for a proper wind load assessment.
Guayente Minchot, Structural Engineer
With Ingrid Cloud architects and engineers can test out very early design intent.

More than 2.000 years of history. 6 iconic constructions. Let’s analyze how different structures affect wind behavior and their surroundings.
For this case we performed 4 flow simulations (with a method capable of picturing the complex behavior of external flow in urban areas – high-fidelity), assessed metrological data and got analysis from a CFD specialist.
The aerodynamics of a high-rise building is a tricky thing! Tall structures act like funnels, pushing wind downwards creating an uncomfortable and potentially dangerous area for pedestrians. When building design fails the consequences can be terrible for the building owner and for the retailers in or close to the building. Bad wind effect can (literally!) break businesses. Check out these two cases were a bad wind performance affected local business:
