Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Smart Buildings and Digital Twins

As buildings and cities become more connected and interdependent, physics-based simulation of smart buildings leading to digital twins is the only way to deliver the cost-effective and sustainable future of the construction industry..

Optimize Construction with Simulation

Today’s construction industry must deliver a new occupant experience that is connected, safe and comfortable while saving energy and minimizing operating costs. To address these challenges, industry leaders are deploying simulation to create physics-based digital twins.

With this tool, planners now have a more in-depth understanding of the impact of design decisions, ranging from site selection to architectural details to materials to heating and cooling processes.

Simulation Is Changing How We Build Cities

Ansys Simulation Build Cities

HVAC & Wind Engineering

Digital models of interior ventilation and external wind engineering maximize energy efficiency, the occupant experience and pedestrian safety.

Structural Building Design

Structural integrity is a complex multicomponent, multiphysics challenge. With new materials empowering ever bolder designs, simulation is the only way to understand performance under normal and extreme loading conditions.

Fire & Smoke Propagation

Engineers designing fire and smoke management systems utilize simulation to address occupants’ safety, facilities’ structural integrity, and compliance with regulations.

Smart Buildings and Smarter Cities

Intelligent connectivity powered by 5G enables smarter buildings and cities that deliver enhanced occupant experiences while reducing environmental footprint. Simulation is critical to delivering the promise of smart buildings and cities.

Modeling a Range of Building Applications

Simulation-based computer models of smart buildings and cities encompass a diverse range of applications. These span internal and external air flow, natural or forced convection HVAC systems, air handling and filtration systems, advanced structural integrity solutions under normal and extreme conditions (earthquake, hurricane, flood, etc.), occupant safety systems and the electronic infrastructure required to deliver smart connected capabilities.

Advanced Software of Tomorrow

The architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry is transforming, with technologies such as simulation, virtual reality and digital twins playing a major role. Modern buildings and civil engineering projects benefit from the unleashed architectural creativity these solutions enable, delivering a safer, more comfortable and connected experience for occupants and passersby while reducing the environmental footprint of the project.

Industries building safety

Simulation is used to understand the impact of natural disasters and accidents. This allows engineers to prepare and design safer buildings.

Electronics building-sustainability

Modeling the heat and airflow inside buildings helps designers improve occupant comfort and increase a building’s overall efficiency—dramatically reducing its environmental footprint.
