  • Structural Wind Loads.

    GWTS is able to determine the building response to buffeting by using state-of-the-art wind engineering techniques. The method employed for a particular project can be desktop, wind tunnel or wind tunnel in combination with computational fluid dynamics depending on the complexity of the project.

  • Wind Tunnel Study.

    Wind tunnel study is an integral part of our workflow for most services provided here at GWTS, In collaboration with Monash University, we provide the best in class wind tunnel tests.

  • Cladding Pressures.

    GWTS uses the latest 3D technology to model detail architectural features of a building and capture all local pressure variations. Our client will receive the building model detail and the pressure taps (sensor) locations before the model fabrication. We take all our clients input to finalize the wind tunnel model.

  • Pedestrian Level Wind.

    Ensuring pedestrian safety and comfort are the prim requirements for any development. Development approval authorities, architect developers and wind engineers work together to achieve this requirement. Ground level wind conditions in areas adjacent to a proposed development are assessed using one of the three methods available to study pedestrian comfort. The methods are desktop, wind tunnel and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Study. The choice of a particular method depends on the type of project.

  • Microclimate Study.

    Microclimate study uses various methods to deliver a strategy for designing a comfortable environment. In general parametric study, Wind tunnel tests and computational fluid dynamics are the tools employed for this study. Microclimate design requires all disciplines in a project to work together. Smooth relationship between disciplines and final microclimate design which address all design team concerns is the prime consideration for GWTS engineers.

"GWTS wind engineers have experiences across all continents thus integrates a global approach with local needs."

GWEAI

GWTS conducted a survey of wind environment regulations for 109 cities around the world. Many cities were found to have little to no mention of wind controls or inadequate consideration.

The deleterious effects of wind in urban environments can have a direct impact on a range of factors such as the safety of pedestrians and the viability of street-level businesses.

The GWTS Wind Environment Awareness Initiative (GWEAI) has thus been implemented to bring about an understanding of the urban wind environment to regulatory bodies, helping them to safely shape their urban developments
