How it works
Professional wind assessment in three simple steps
Run a wind assessment in a few clicks, no coding skills or complex setup required.
1. Configure your settings
Type in name, select number of wind directions you want to analyze, and set the geographic position of your project.
2. Upload your models
Upload STL or OBJ files for the main building/buildings, surrounding buildings, terrain, and optionally vegetation.
3. Analyze the results
Explore through interactive 3D visualizations the results of your wind assessment and download a PDF report ready to be submitted to the authorities.
All you need for a complete wind assessment
Explore a wide range of features giving you the power to analyze all aspects of wind comfort and safety.
The Lawson wind comfort criteria classify the conditions based on the associated "comfortable" activity using the wind simulations and wind statistics for the area.
- Analyze pedestrian wind comfort
- Identify frequently windy and calm areas
Wind Speed Map
The wind speed from each direction in percentage of regional reference wind speed at 10m height, typically given in the weather forecasts.
- Identify wind directions causing wind acceleration or sheltering locally
Turbulence Intensity Map
The turbulence intensity provides insights into the fluctuations and variations in wind speed.
- Identify areas of high turbulence
Average Wind Speed Map
The average wind speed is calculated based on the wind simulations and local wind statistics.
- Identify areas of frequently high and low wind speeds, complementary to the Pedestrian Wind Comfort Maps
Average Wind Power Density Map
The average wind power density represents the wind power per unit area and is calculated based on the wind simulations and local wind statistics.
- Find the optimal placement of an urban wind turbine and evaluate its feasibility
Wind Safety Map
The NEN 8100 standard classifies the wind safety risk based on how frequently one can expect the wind to exceed 15 m/s using the wind simulations and wind statistics for the area.
- Reveal possibly dangerous wind conditions
Everything included in the platform
ArchiWind is built on years of extensive research by academic experts specializing in urban winds
and our experience working on numerous industry projects.
Automated wind statistics retrieval
Wind statistics for your location are retrieved from ERA-5 and other accurate historical wind statistics datasets.
3D visualisation of the data
Freely move around in your model and explore how wind affects your site in an interactive 3D viewer.
Fully automated report
Generate a fully automated report with data, images and charts, presenting the detailed results from your simulation.
Up to 32 wind directions
Investigate the fields from 8, 16, or 32 wind directions, and increase the accuracy for the aggregated or averaged maps.
Export data for additional analysis
All wind-assessment raw and processed data can be exported to perform additional custom analysis or integrations.
Your data is kept safe, but you can easily share assessments with your team and protect them with a password.
