Wind Analysis Toolkit

SCI has now released its new 'SCIPHYR' wind software (pronounced "Zephyr") as a replacement to BREVe. SCIPHYR has been developed as a web service for seamless integration with 3rd party applications and uses up-to-date data (for terrain categories, etc.). SCIPHYR allows to calculate peak velocity pressures (as well as other relevant wind loading data) in 12 directions for a given site location within the UK and Ireland. SCI has also developed SCIPHYR+, an add-on software that uses the SCIPHYR outputs to calculate the wind loading on the walls and roof of buildings. Together, SCIPHYR and SCIPHYR+ form SCI's new ‘Wind Analysis Toolkit’.
