If a flaw or a risk is identified early in the design process, a minor change on the sketching board can improve the performance of the whole building.

Architects, BIM-engineers, urban planners and structural engineers have to predict how the air will behave inside and outside of the building they are designing. The inside flow will affect how the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, or contaminants will spread within the structure, while the outside streams, the wind flow, will be crucial for the building’s structural integrity as well as pedestrian comfort.

These are crucial aspects of the design work. If a flaw or a risk is identified early in the design process, a minor change on the sketching board can improve the performance of the whole building – make it safer, more energy efficient, more comfortable.

Outdoor flows simulations can be very useful when designing the structure of a building. Understanding how the building will interact with the environment, and in particular how it will react to external air flow is getting critical in contemporary architectural design. Good urban planning requires wind simulations. Pedestrian comfort and safety and the dispersion of air pollution can and should be predicted by conducting wind simulations. Scientists predict a dynamic growth of CFD simulations popularity among architects, structural engineers, urban planners and BIM-engineers. And this specific group of professionals requires an easy to use, fast and reliable CFD-software.
