October 10, 2011. Seoul, South Korea.
Track 09-02. Buttgereit Volker, “Generating Wind Optimized Building Envelopes for Super High Rise Buildings
in Extreme Wind Climates”.
The presentation reviews by way of case study how recent technological advances in interactive wind tunnel testing techniques coupled to advanced real-time data analysis systems. In particular, the presentation will discuss how this can provide highly time and cost efficient iterative testing approaches to the process of integrating architectural shape and structural system design to arrive at a wind optimised building envelope at an early stage in the design of the next generation of super tall buildings.
