Pedestrian wind/sun comfort in urban areas
Urban micro climate assessment
Urban wind flow simulation on any site to assess aerodynamics effects induced by buildings. We accurately calculate wind speed, direction and turbulence. Solar irradiance and exposure frequencies are also calculated.
From local climate data, UrbaWind and UrbaSun give an accurate assessment of pedestrian comfort. Discomfort areas, high risk areas for pedestrians or for two-wheeled vehicles are located. Recommendations are made to reduce the size of discomfort areas.
Building’s energy performance in urban area
Mapping of natural air ventilation potential
Pressure field around buildings is analyzed to assess natural air ventilation potential depending on prevailing wind directions.
Air exchange rate computation to optimize indoor thermal comfort
Air exchange rates and air flow are quantified taking into account natural air ventilation potential assessment of the site, orientation and openings location of buildings.
Mapping of solar radiation fluxes on buildings walls – Solar gains
Assessment of solar gains on glazed surfaces, façades or roofs provides the necessary input data to the thermal balance of low energy and passive buildings in eco-districts.
Energy yield assessment in urban area
Production assessment of wind / solar energy
Meteodyn provides wind/solar potential maps of the desired area from data collected at weather stations.
Optimization of wind turbines and photovoltaic panel layout
We provide the most optimized layout.
Wind assessment on photovoltaic panels
Wind pressure on panels and their cooling by wind are considered to ensure structural stability and production optimization.
