Space simulation

For perfect comfort in a room, phenomena such as drafts, cold air drop on cold facades and temperature fluctuations must be investigated and optimized. In addition, the energy concept of the heating/ or cooling panel should be optimized. One example is the activation of the building envelope as thermal mass, where the IET…

Flow simulation of a 3D scanned canyon

Previous experimental tests in hydraulic engineering have reached their limits with complex geometries. In cooperation with the IBU - Institute for Civil and Environmental Engineering, a gorge has been 3D scanned, 3D printed and analyzed with a flow simulation and an experiment. Thereby CFD simulations offer additional…
