The Actiflow wind assessment tool is developed to enable an easy and fast analysis of the wind climate around a new real estate development, in an early phase of the building design.
We propose to use the tool to understand the impact of your building design on the local wind climate in the conceptual design phase, in which you determine the shape and orientation of the building volumes.
Optionally, you can compare multiple conceptual design variants, and find out which variant has the best wind climate.
By dealing with these wind effects at the start of your design process, you will avoid problems later and you can make sure the final wind climate around your building will comply with local norms and guidelines.
As the technology behind the wind assessment tool is optimized for maximum speed, the tool cannot be used to prove final compliance with these norms and guidelines, e.g. as part of a planning or permit application (see FAQ Why can the results not be used for planning or permit applications?)
