#57 Wind Comfort Simulation and New Engineering Design Process

For a typical engineering project, Engineering design (upstream) and operation downstream) commonly follow a linear process through multiple contracting parties. Such a process is inefficient and unsustainable for continuous improvement and IP retainment.

To resolve such dilemmas in building wind comfort design, Lendlease Digital collaborates with Monash University to develop a new pathway by coupling cutting-edge multidisciplinary technologies, including wind tunnel experiments, numerical simulations, and field testing.

The new pathway will improve efficiency by introducing a feedback loop to the system, to date an unprecedented approach to wind design for the built environment. Potentially, this pathway can also quickly transform comfort design within other engineering disciplines, for example, fire, water, and thermal.
