Computational Wind Engineering with CFD in the Cloud

CFD in the Cloud

Engineers consider computational fluid dynamics (CFD). They often think of internal flow (like in pipes) or external flow (like in a river) (e.g., aircraft aerodynamics). But computational wind engineering (CWE), or wind engineering, is an area where CFD is used much more. This is because wind engineering is complicated, and there is more and more computing power available.  Most of the time, these studies are done in expensive wind tunnels and rarely online. They look at everything from how comfortable the wind is to how well it moves air and…
