2009/Mar/27 1.45MB Smoke in Atriums Predicting how smoke moves through an atrium can be a notoriously difficult problem.
2009/Mar/27 332kB Why do Wind Tunnel Testing Progressive designers and engineers understand that significant savings in cost of structure and cladding can be obtained by completing a wind tunnel test in the early stage of the design.
2009/Jan/09 544kB Technote 34: Implications of Solid-walled Balconies on Wind Loading The key function of a balcony is to provide accessibility to the outdoor environment for pleasure. However, solid-walled balconies can have a significant influence on local cladding pressures and the overall wind-induced response of tall buildings.
2008/Sep/01 787kB Who Can See the Wind? Natural ventilation is becoming popular for green buildings, but doing it properly requires carefully modelling the interaction of thermal and aerodynamic forces.
2007/Jul/01 1.06MB Isolation Room Ventilation Design Case Studies The paper focuses on how to quantify and achieve target levels of protection for either the patient (positively pressurized rooms) or health care workers and other hospital occupants (negatively pressurized rooms).
2007/Jul/01 206kB Prediction of Local Exterior Wind Pressures from Wind Tunnel Studies using a Time History This paper presents an alternative method of predicting local exterior wind pressures by performing a time history analysis of the combined meteorological readings (and simulated data where applicable) and the peak pressure coefficients measured in a wind tunnel.
2007/Jul/01 333kB Snowdrift Control - Design Application of CFD Through interpretation of the wind flow field predicted through CFD, snowdrift prone areas around an existing building, that is raised above the snow surface, were identified.
