Planning applications for large buildings in the urban environment often require wind microclimate assessment. Traditionally, this has been undertaken with wind tunnel testing of a scale model but computer simulation has now become established as the preferred option due to its efficiency and accuracy. This recorded webinar discusses simulation-based assessment and how time and money can be saved in preparing planning applications. Topics included:
- What are the risks related to wind effects with new builds?
- What are the benefits of simulation over wind tunnel testing?
- Illustrative examples
- Should you develop your own capability or use consultants?
