CFD Simulation in the Built Environment

This article takes a look at the role CFD simulation is having on the industry now and in the future.

Simulation: Bridging The Gap between Architecture & Engineering

Alongside BIM, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can play an integral role in all areas of building design providing accurate and time-efficient predictions of building performance relating to air flow, temperature, pressure, and other similar parameters.

Sustainable Building Design through CFD & BIM Integration

Recent years have seen an increase in the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software, a trend that has changed the working methods of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. BIM has played an ...

Future Testing for Architects

New technology is changing the way Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) companies are solving problems. Reacting quickly to issues and limiting project cost and budget overruns is key to success.
