Wind Engineering & Thermal Comfort Consultants
RWDI was retained by VCM authorities to provide wind engineering services for the upcoming Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir Development in Vrindavan, Mathura. RWDI’s wind engineering services included wind-induced response of the tall tower, wind-induced façade loading on the development, and evaluation of the thermal comfort condition in the outdoor areas of the total development. For the first two studies, RWDI made scaled models of the temple at 1:500 scale and wind tested in RWDI’s sophisticated wind tunnel in Canada. RWDI’s results were utilized by structural engineers for the design of the temple structure and by curtain wall consultants for the façade design.
RWDI is a unique consulting firm that leverages the world’s most sophisticated engineering, computing and scientific techniques to help create healthy, comfortable environments and high performance structures – the result of more than 43 years of growth and development. From offices in Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, UK and USA, RWDI’s consultants meet the world’s most complex wind and weather-related challenges with experience, knowledge and superior service.
RWDI’s experts collaborate with architects, engineers, planners and developers on issues such as sustainable design and operations, wind, sun, snow, sand, ventilation, cooling, air quality, noise, acoustics, vibration, energy, day-lighting, alternative / renewable energy, structural dynamics, and motion control.
