Applications

Building Aerodynamics

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can accurately calculate air velocity, temperature, humidity level and chemical or particulate concentration, both inside and outside buildings, by numerically solving the governing equations for fluid flow and heat transfer.

HVAC

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) allows to evaluate indoor air quality and thermal comfort provided by heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

Fire and Smoke Simulation

Fire, smoke propagation and explosions represents a significant risk in buildings, urban and industrial areas. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations allow designers to understand the development and impact of fires on building and occupants. CFD can demonstrate whether the selected solutions meet the expectations and the requirements of building regulations and help improve them when possible.

Sustainable Building

Sustainability is a major issue in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, even in light of rising concerns around climate change: the building sector consumes nearly one-third of global final energy consumption, making it responsible for about one-third of total CO2 emissions. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) plays an important role in designing energy-efficient, comfortable and healthy buildings.
