Modélisation de ventilation naturelle sur un bâtiment

Why do we need to assess the pressure coefficient field on the building envelope?

It is well known that the natural ventilation of a building is driven by the combined forces of wind and thermal buoyancy. However, when the opening areas are large enough, and except for large volumes, natural ventilation is mainly driven by wind forces. Therefore, for the evaluation of natural ventilation in warm climates, the coupling between thermal forces and wind driven forces is generally assumed to be negligible. The pressure field on the building envelope generates flows through...

Workshop ibero-america urban wind resource assessment

Join us at the REGEDIS workshop organized by CYTED

REGEDIS is a CYTED Thematic Network that aims to coordinate several research groups and companies belonging to 13 Ibero-American countries to facilitate the development of distributed wind systems (both isolated and integrated into the network electricity) in urban, suburban, and rural environments, for residential, commercial, and industrial use, through the exchange of knowledge and experiences. The REGEDIS Workshop on Urban Wind Resource Assessment will be held online on November 29 and...

The importance of a good use of wind data in wind comfort analysis

WEBINAR: 3 things to consider to correctly use wind data in wind comfort analysis

What are the things to do and what are the things to avoid to correctly use wind data in wind comfort analysis? During this webinar, our urban climatology expert will give you 3 things to consider and all his tips to properly analyse pedestrian wind comfort! Then he will present you some application examples. The webinar will last around 20 minutes. At the end, 10 minutes are set aside for you to ask all your questions, and our expert will answer them.
