Architects and designers
Maximize property value and performance with climate-conscious designs
Convenient browser-based access to powerful urban microclimate simulation and analysis allows you to incorporate Thermal Comfort, Wind Comfort, Airflow, and Shadowing considerations into your initial concepts, early designs, and project proposals.
An easy to use, web-based environmental analysis tool
Orbital Stack’s Thermal Comfort analysis combines wind and solar simulations with climate data to show how outdoor spaces meet usage profiles and indicate patrons’ thermal comfort.
Orbital Stack simulates Wind Comfort conditions and illustrates wind direction and strength for every outdoor space in your design, providing typical wind comfort conditions and scales to guide appropriate use of each space.
Airflow Analysis examines wind speeds and reveals potential issues with usability, comfort, and safety. Climate-scaled wind flow plots and streamlines map winds on a virtual model, providing insights into local directionality and guiding mitigation choices.
Analyze shadows by predicting their general placement according to the season and time of day. Plots are created for each season and time range to show the solar potential as a % for the given period.
