EDIFICATION

The last decade has seen a notable increment in the demand of wind studies due to the use of increasingly flexible structures and of complex architectural form. To date, national standards are limited to simplified building geometries, based on a generalization of the influence of topography and surrounding buildings and structures. Detailed studies in a boundary layer wind tunnel provides estimations of the wind effects of singular structures with greater precision, reducing the risk of failure and providing potential cost savings in the construction process.

Key services

· Global structural loads, including the dynamic component in the form of equivalent    static loads and load combinations
· Pressure distribution in the design of facade elements
· Maximum accelerations for serviceability
· Aeroelastic phenomena
· Fatigue analysis of individual structural elements due to dynamic excitation
· Local wind speeds and human comfort analysis
· Environmental efficiency and natural ventilation
· Wind field studies for town planning
