Wirth Research is recognized as a major exponent of CFD, initially focused solely upon the aerodynamic design of racing car body profiles but now more widely across the Automotive sector and recently Wirth Research has applied its CFD expertise to solving non-motorsport design challenges such as within the wider Transport and Architectural sectors.
The Wirth Research architectural CFD expertise also includes the provision of consultancy on natural ventilation and tall buildings. They offer advanced CFD solutions for improved building design.
The results of Wirth Research Wind Micro-Climate and Pedestrian Comfort Wind Studies are evidenced in projects which gain approval due to being better considered and hence better designed developments causing minimum detrimental impact upon the surrounding environment as an outcome of improved and timely decision making at the design stage.
