The Concept of Airflow Analyst

Wind Simulation over Complex Terrain and Buildings with Easy Operability and Advanced Algorithm

Airflow Analyst® is a 3D CFD (Computed Fluid Dynamics) software running under ArcGIS Desktop as an extension. This is a decision support tool or exploration tool for planner, designer, researcher and manager who want to predict or manage wind flow in their project. This tool is not exclusively for fluid experts.

You can simulate and visualize the wind flow based on a common geospatial database such as DEM and extruded polygon feature class which represent buildings. All processes for simulation such as mesh generation, solver execution and result visualization can be done by intuitive operations on the ArcGIS Desktop environment. This is the world’s first software which integrate CFD into GIS.
