Wind Entry and Natural Ventilation

Wind Entry and Natural Ventilation

To reduce energy consumption in modern buildings, natural ventilation can be used, but special care must be taken to ensure it is implemented correctly to avoid compromising thermal comfort and air quality.

Through wind tunnel testing and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) an accurate model of the effectiveness of natural ventilation can be achieved. Our methodologies can include consideration of all factors including external façade pressures, solar heat gain, thermal properties of materials and HVAC systems.
