Innovation in Building Design through Engineering Simulation - White Paper

In today's world, engineers and architects increasingly employ engineering simulation to enable the design of atria, auditoriums, buildings, stadiums and sports arenas to meet energy-efficiency and sustainability goals within strict project timelines. Engineering simulation software is used to create a virtual prototype of a building or interior space on a computer, and calculate the heating, cooling and ventilation performance. This virtual building design approach leads to the rapid investigation of alternative designs and a better understanding of the design elements that can improve building performance, and allows the design team to more easily explore innovative solutions while reducing their exposure to risk.
