Artificial Intelligence

What could you create if you weren’t limited by the delays, complexities, and costs of traditional simulations?

New technology for new possibilities

The early stages of the design process involve exploration and experimentation as you look to turn your ideas into reality.

However, the traditional tools designers use to test wind performance are slow, complicated, and expensive—making them unsuitable for rapid iteration and too costly for smaller projects (e.g., residential developments, small condos, smaller retail developments, etc.).

That’s why we created a first-of-its-kind, artificial intelligence-powered wind simulation engine that’s:

Get wind and climate estimations in seconds, avoiding the workflow slowdowns of traditional analysis


Browser-based access eliminates the capital, expertise, and computational hurdles of legacy approaches


Simulation for the price of a coffee lets you analyze each design iteration and explore different options

Artificial Intelligence. Real Insights.

Using an artificial intelligence (AI) technique called machine learning (ML), we built a wind simulation engine that provides airflow modeling and estimations in a fraction of the time and cost of alternative approaches.

But how did we do it?

The RWDI Advantage

Machine learning relies on huge datasets for training and testing. Essentially, it works by using some of the data to ‘teach’ an AI—in our case, a three-dimensional neural network—about the relationships between inputs (e.g., massing models and climate data) and outputs (e.g., airflow paths and patterns), and some of the data to validate that the AI’s predictions are accurate.

Because Orbital Stack is part of RWDI Ventures, we have access to RWDI’s urban windflow dataset—which happens to be the largest in the world.

Leveraging RWDI’s expertise and decades of data from countless wind tunnel tests allowed us to create a transformational technology that unlocks a world of possibilities for building designers. Our industry-first AI-powered wind simulation engine uses a fraction of the resources of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations—which is why it can provide early-stage wind assessments at a speed and price that CFD can’t match.
