Pedestrian Wind Comfort for Open Places
Wind comfort is a crucial factor for proper zoning in projects that involve open - especially public-access - spaces. Bicycle lanes, waiting areas for public transport, entrances to buildings, train stations, subways, etc. might need additional construction in order to prevent dangerous wind or usage restrictions.

We provide essential pedestrian wind comfort information on open spaces. Wind comfort criteria are defined following the modern standard definition according to NEN 8100, with additional categorization according to your needs. Our analysis is based on long-term1 statistical wind data for your location, including individual Weibull2 wind velocities for 16 or 32 wind directions.

We fully support terrain, including steep areas like cliffs, roughness zoning and also all wind-related effects caused by trees, hedges and similar wind obstacles. Thin structures like shading, awnings and openings (e.g. thoroughfares) are also fully supported.

What you get:

  • NEN 8100 wind comfort for 16 or 32 distinct wind directions
  • Wind comfort 1.5m above terrain following any slope
  • Wind comfort for elevated structures like terraces, balconies, etc.
  • Overlapping areas supported e.g. underneath and above a roofed structure
  • Simulation directly from the architectural model without remodelling

  • High-performance computing, usually completed overnight
  • High-fidelity simulation supporting accurate architecture models
  • 3D results to import into your software or to share online with a simple link

In short, we support your project with highly accurate, state-of-the-art wind comfort simulation. We are fast, uncomplicated, use international standards and have competitive pricing. Use the form below to get in contact or try our cost estimator to get a first quote for your project!

  1. Usually, we work with hourly data over a period of 10 years for a specific location, to factor the actual meteorological conditions into our analysis. 

  2. State of the art statistics for calculating expected wind velocities for a given wind direction.
