CFD Analysis & Wind Tunnel Testing

CFD & Testing

Wind tunnel tests can accurately predict the effects of wind behavior on and around buildings to help mitigate risk and facilitate good facade design, as well as the determination of the total building load.

There is a need to create comfortable and usable pedestrian environments in many new developments and reduce the cost of the materials and structure required to provide economical building solutions successfully. Therefore, wind tunnel testing, CFD simulation, and desktop evaluations can be effective value engineering tools to improve conditions and generate cost savings.

In addition to these services, Systems B2B can also complement CFD analysis to report and predict air flows in closed environments such as double-walled facades and efficient evaluation of Ventilation air flows in buildings.

A wind tunnel is an aerodynamic tool used for research and studies the effects of air moving along with solid objects. The wind tunnel consists of an open tubular passage with the tested construction model centrally mounted on its topography.

Curved or angular buildings are becoming more and more common. However, the risks associated with these buildings’ locations are often overlooked when it comes to the difficulty of predicting the wind response of these buildings; Systems B2B can provide wind studies for these multifaceted exteriors.

The accuracy of wind load calculations has a considerable effect on the size of glass facades because the wind pressure is an important design consideration in determining the thickness of glass in facades. Significant savings in coating costs can be achieved if wind tunnel testing is done early in design.-
