Residential Buildings in Trieste, Italy
The stand-alone program RWIND allowed Davide Prando (architect) and Marco Rota Nodari (engineer) to optimize the project, highlighting some critical locations on the buildings' surfaces, due to the high positive and negative pressure values encountered.

The particular conditions of the site, known for its high wind speed - that is, the presence of wind originating from the northeast known as the "Bora di Trieste" - necessitated an in-depth analysis by simulating the building in a digital wind tunnel.
The collaboration between Davide Prando (architect) and Marco Rota Nodari (engineer) using the stand-alone program RWIND has led to the optimization of the project, highlighting some critical locations on the buildings' surfaces due to the high positive and negative pressure values encountered.

Compliance with building codes, such as Eurocode, is essential to ensure the safety, structural integrity, and sustainability of buildings and structures. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) plays a vital role in this process by simulating fluid behavior, optimizing designs, and helping architects and engineers meet Eurocode requirements related to wind load analysis, natural ventilation, fire safety, and energy efficiency. By integrating CFD into the design process, professionals can create safer, more efficient, and compliant buildings that meet the highest standards of construction and design in Europe.
