title Design Driven Physical Experimentation: A flexible wind sensing platform for architects
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. 239-248
summary Architectural design in this ‘digital age’ is becoming more embedded within virtual computer aided design environments. This study expands this virtual design environment back into physical realms through the use of microelectronic wind sensing technology. An interactive and flexible wind sensing system (open source minia- ture portable wind tunnel and wind sensors) was evaluated for its abil- ity to simulate and measure the effects of wind. Physical models of four high-rise buildings were constructed to evaluate ground level pe- destrian comfort resulting from the degree of torsional twist in the building form. The model investigation formed a case study for evalu- ating of the low-cost miniature portable wind tunnel and microelec- tronic wind sensing system for comparison with an industrial aeronau- tical wind tunnel and high precision wind sensors.
