Designs of skyscrapers, bridges, stadiums and iconic landmarks around the world grow more complex with each new project. As a result, construction engineers must carry out more complex wind engineering analyses to simulate how a building responds to its environment, or the effect that the structure will have on the space around it.

Understanding the aerodynamics of a building is much more efficient and accurate when virtual modeling is used. Assessing the structural load imposed by the wind is a priority. But simulation provides much more information, including the transport and dispersion of pollutants, or pedestrian comfort at ground level.

ANSYS tools offer engineers a greater understanding of the aerodynamics of structures while providing regulatory authorities with vital environmental impact information, particularly if the building falls outside standard design codes.

Because such analysis evaluates various options quickly and efficiently, simulation reduces the risk of faulty construction and increases the probability of project completion on time and within budget, satisfying all regulatory requirements.
