Simplify the complex task of accurately simulating real-world wind behavior with AI
Convenient and cost-effective access to powerful outdoor microclimate, cladding and wind analysis for engineers that provides accurate and reliable data for optimizing designs without the need for extensive computational resources.
An easy to use, web-based environmental analysis tool
Orbital Stack provides typical wind comfort conditions and scales to guide appropriate use of each space. Combining wind and solar simulations with climate data also allow you to visualize how outdoor spaces meet usage profiles and indicate patrons’ thermal comfort.
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.
Run pressure coefficients on the entire façade of your building and assess mean values along with more meaningful minimum and maximum pressures. Predict pressures in real-time while instantly iterating to find your ideal configuration at the conception stage.
