Our pedestrian comfort and wind microclimate services can help predict the annual effect of wind around your site on pedestrians when using external amenity spaces such as pavements, outdoor seating, gardens and other such green spaces.
We can help you carry out detailed analysis of the site from conceptual stage to ensure that the design incorporates the best wind mitigation features to minimise unwanted flow accelerations and ensure comfort and safety thresholds are met. We can carry out a virtual wind tunnel analysis of the site, incorporating detailed terrain shape and surrounding buildings within the CFD model to provide the best representation of air flow around the site.
We can predict the year round air speeds expected at any point on the site, also helping to demonstrate compliance with pedestrian comfort and safety criterion, such as Lawson’s Criteria, and fulfilling GSAS requirements.
Key features of the service include:
Heat Island Effect
Advanced CFD simulations can also be performed to analyse the thermal comfort for pedestrians combining air flow and solar exposure. This type of analysis is designed to tackle the effects of solar reflections on pedestrians and study shading strategies to maximise use of space around buildings for use by food and beverage businesses. Some major features of the analysis are:
