title Integrating CFD and VR for indoor thermal environment design feedback
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 663-672
summary In the context of environmental consideration and im- provement of living standards, design of high performance buildings that are both comfortable and energy saving is important. Simulation tools (such as CFD) enables analysing and visualizing environmental factors (such as temperature and airflow) based on the design proper- ties and can be used to improve the building design for better perfor- mance. However, these tools have limitations in providing interactivi- ty with users for creating multiple CFD visualization results to be used for analysing design options. This research presents an integrated de- sign tool which consists of CFD and VR technologies. The proposed system visualizes CFD results in a VR environment together with ar- chitectural design. Additionally, it enables configuring CFD parame- ters within the VR environment and allows repeatedly executing simu- lation and visualizing updated results. The proposed system enables visualizing information in relationship with the actual architectural design, space configuration and thermal environment, and provides ef- ficient design feedbacks.
