Architectural and Environmental Design Tool

BIM Data Support!

  • Rhinoceros®
  • SketchUp
  • Google Earth
etc…

AKLFlowDesigner is an airflow simulation software that enables wind analysis by easily importing 3D models of buildings or urban blocks developed by modeling tools such as Rhinoceros and SketchUp.

Applying AKLFlowDesigner with these modeling tools such as Rhinoceros or SketchUp for simulations will allow architects and designers to examine the relationship between building and wind from early stages in designing process. What used to be a complicated process is now accessible with easy steps using AKLFlowDesigner.

AKLFlowDesigner is BIM capable in IFC data format.
Fast and easy-to-use airflow simulation tool for architects which allows environmentally friendly design at the same time. Airflow simulation software used to be a tool for analysts and experts, but AKLFlowDesigner makes it accessible to people from all walks of life.

Easy to use AKLFlowDesigner

Example of BIM software

Architectural and Environmental Design Tool

is airflow simulation software for understanding airflow speed and distribution of heat and contamination.
AKLFlowDesigner has distinct easy-to-use interface and fast calculation allowing use for non-engineers and designers for everyday design.
Because designers can use airflow simulation many times when designing, AKLFlowDesigner makes possible to design environmentally friendly architecture while using less energy.

Patented in Japan and the United States/ Filing patent in Europe

Connecting Architectural Design and Environmental Design

Simple Preparation

Unlike conventional software tools, AKLFlowDesigner does not require any complicated preparation for analysis.
It can easily import data from Rhinoceros or SketchUp and the airflow can be simulated intuitively.

AKLFlowDesigner is equipped with user-friendly data entry screen that allows intuitive and manualess data entry for desired airflow simulation.

Easy to visualize

AKLFlowDesigner visualizes the otherwise invisible flow of wind with just simple steps. It is a highly effective tool to aid your technology proposals to clients with visualized wind movements and temperature distribution in 3D, a difficult idea to articulate in the past.

Fast and Robust

In conventional software tools, even the simple models required over 30 minutes for 3D airflow simulations. However, AKLFlowDesigner requires only 5 minutes for importing data and providing results from the analysis!*1

Also, software tools in the past required establishing detailed parameters to converge analyzed data, but AKLFlowDesigner can do away with unnecessary setting process. Highly robust solver lets designers perform 3D simulations fast and easy.

Capable of analyzing 1million mesh in just 5 minutes!

*1:Time required for analysis varies depending on the resolution of the mesh.
