Experimental: wind loading and comfort study on a 1/300 scale model
Lighting: study of solar impact
SETEC engineering firm called on the CSTB during the design phase to obtain precise data on solar gain to simulate the aerothermal properties of the atrium of the Phare office tower. Because the atrium design calls for broad use of glazing, the solar gain greatly influences the thermal and air flow comfort in the space. The data was simulated using the sunlight module of the PHANIE software package.
