PROJECT DESCRIPTION

As tall buildings and skyscrapers become increasingly complex in overall design and scale, they are placed at a greater risk of being affected by the wind. In certain regions with high wind velocity (such as coastal areas), even normal building designs have to take wind loads into account. It is the task of architects and design engineers to ensure a safe, sustainable, and cost-efficient design by utilizing wind engineering studies and taking into account building aerodynamics. These studies are now an industry standard and are conducted to first evaluate the dynamic effect of the wind on the structure, and then to optimize the design to mitigate these effects. The objectives of this project are

To develop a CFD simulation for evaluation of wind load on building.

To propose design guideline.

To optimize building structure

BENEFITS

A quick method to estimate pressure loads on the structure and facade design.

A quick method to determine and mitigate the dynamic effects of the wind load.
