CD-adapco has announced that Building System and Diagnostics (BSD) has adopted Star-CCM+ to provide ventilation and airflow analysis for building designs.

Today, many building design companies use simulation in areas ranging from architectural rendering to engineering data analysis in order to ensure plans offer a safe, comfortable environment for occupants in the most energy-efficient manner possible.

For years, CD-adapco has assisted companies with applications in building and environmental flows, including ventilation, indoor air quality, HVAC, pedestrian comfort, thermal comfort, solar and thermal radiation, complex glazing, wind loading and fire and smoke.

Tan Phay Ping, managing director at BSD, a building consultancy company in the field of building performance simulations for city planning and architectural and building design in Singapore, said: ‘Star-CCM+ suits our requirements due to its robustness, ease of use and its ability to handle complex geometry that we normally encounter in today’s building designs.

‘We are working on improving the turnaround time for each project so that our analysis is timely for the architect.

‘With Star-CCM+, we may be closer to achieving this,’ he added.

The software will be used to predict the airflow patterns around and within buildings or cities so that buildings are designed for good cross ventilation and minimal urban heat entrainment effects.
