Procedural Compute is a cloud platform for utilization of computational resources. The system is tailored for handling multiphysics simulation jobs used in the AEC industry. Compute is developed to seamlessly integrate with Grasshopper to keep the simulation workflow as efficient as possible.

Urban comfort metrics such as Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) are often used to assess the quality of an outdoor space. The comfort metrics is usually expressed as “experienced temperature” and depends on a number of environmental factors, such as wind speed, mean radiant temperature, air temperature and relative humidity. While air temperature and relative humidity can be obtained from a weather file, both wind speed and mean radiant temperature have to be simulated. Both simulations are quite computational heavy, especially if done one an annual basis.

In this webinar we will guide you through setup of an urban comfort simulation with UTCI. We will use Compute to run the CFD and MRT simulations and combine the results of the simulations in the UTCI calculation. We will take the viewers through a Grasshopper canvas that sets up the case and computes the urban comfort around a project from the Architecture Studio 3XN. The project is situated at the harbour front in Aarhus, Denmark.

Speaker: Christian Kongsgaard is an architectural engineer focused on computational environmental design and streamlining building performance simulations. He is the Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder at Procedural.
