Windtech offers world-leading Wind Engineering services to determine the wind effects on buildings and the environment, using the most advanced instrumentation & analysis as well as desktop and CFD.
Windtech Consultants is an industry-leading, global wind engineering consultancy firm specializing in providing studies of dynamic wind actions on structures and façades, bridge aerodynamics studies, and environmental wind studies using world-class wind tunnel testing facilities to carry out wind tunnel testing.
Windtech also undertakes the modelling of various aspects relating to environmental effects and Building Physics using Computational Fluid Dynamics – CFD modelling. Other services include Sustainable Design and Remote Monitoring services. Over the last 30+ years, Windtech’s highly skilled team of wind engineers have developed a close synergy with some of the most successful developers, building and project managers, architects, and structural and façade engineers from around the world.
Through a culture of continual research and development since its inception in 1991, Windtech’s senior wind engineering team members have brought about significant advances in various aspects of Wind Engineering. Including the analysis of the wind-induced responses of complex building structures, wind noise in buildings, effective natural ventilation design, and remote monitoring of the dynamic behaviour of structures, to name a few.
Windtech’s experienced wind engineering consultants continue to adopt a flexible and progressive approach to engineering problems with the core objective of creating innovative and robust engineering solutions that positively impact the design process, significantly reducing overheads to owners and operators.
Windtech has built up a global presence with technical support in 9 offices spread across the globe. We can support you globally with a portfolio of over 3,000 major building projects across 35+ countries. Our extensive wind study portfolio has been a testament to the dedication of our team of senior wind engineers having over 150 years of combined experience in wind engineering research and its practical applications.
Windtech’s senior wind engineers are actively involved on standards and technical review committees and have contributed to developing standards and guidelines relating to wind engineering, wind tunnel testing, and CFD.
Windtech’s Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) expertise is world-leading. Windtech was the first company to align with new regulations in London, UK and New York, USA and undertook regular validation of its CFD against wind tunnel data to ensure the most robust and reliable results.
CFD modelling is primarily used to analyze wind microclimate and shape optimisation for structural responses. Windtech’s deep knowledge of CFD has also enabled it to harness its effectiveness for sustainable design. Such uses include studies to assess air quality, thermal comfort, stack effects and wind-driven rain, snow or sand accumulation. Windtech also use CFD in hybrid analysis, combining data from wind tunnel testing and CFD to give clients the best of both techniques.
