Façade and Roof Greening

Learn how to simulate complex interactions between vegetation, substrate layers, and fixation materials mounted on façades or roofs.

Full Forcing Manager

Learn how to define diurnal boundary conditions for various meteorological parameters over many days or months.

Rhino / Grasshopper Plugin

Brief introduction to how this plugin enables users to convert Rhino 3-D designs to ENVI-met model areas and run simulations without even opening the ENVI-met software suite.

Model Geometry – Vegetation

Go into further detail about ENVI-met’s model geometry and learn how to modify the physical parameters of different types of vegetation.

Boundary Conditions

An overview of ENVI-met’s model structure and exploration of both the one-dimensional boundary model and the three-dimensional core model. In addition, the different available boundary conditions – open, cyclic, and simple forcing – will be explained.

Unfolded – the Complete Guide

This series will take you through every single step and function of the software, from the setup of a work area, to the creation of a simulation, to analyzing the data from your project, and everything in between.

Unfolded Teaser

Welcome to our teaser for the upcoming series: Unfolded – a complete guide to the ENVI-met software.

 

Starting from the Scratch

In this video, we introduce you to the ENVI-met software, show you around the model area we will be using throughout the series, describe the database system within ENVI-met, and help you to set up a new project.

Building and Materials

In this video, we cover materials and show the different kinds of materials that ENVI-met offers. As well you get an introduction  how to create your own materials.

 

 

Building Walls

In this video, we show how walls work in the Database Manager and how to create your own walls. As well the functionality of the multiple node model is explained and how to average parameter values to simulate walls containing more than 3 materials.

Spaces

This feature allows users to create model areas and resulting input files (.INX) needed to run a simulation. There are a variety of tools for modeling elements such as buildings, vegetation, surfaces and pollutants.

Spaces – Part 1

An introduction to the challenges a user may encounter and things to keep in mind when digitizing a model area. This tutorial explains how to set up a model area and digitize both buildings and vegetation.

Spaces – Part 2

An explanation of workflow efficiency when digitizing surfaces and how to use the 3-D “Detailed Design” mode for applying materials to walls and windows.

Digitization using 2.5-D and 3-D mode with Spaces

An explanation of the difference between Space’s two digitization modes and what to consider when using them.

Albero

With ALBERO, the user can simulate complex three-dimensional plants and manage both their properties and appearance. This also enables the creation of new plants to emulate specific species of interest, accounting for features such as root shape, canopy size, leaf area index, leaf albedo and the ability to distinguish between evergreen and deciduous species.

Creating a new shrub/ tree in Albero

Learn how to create a new “empty plant” for a specific shrub or tree species of interest.

Adapting an existing plant in Albero

Learn how to adapt a default shrub/ tree that is provided with Albero.

Creating new simple plants

An introduction to ENVI-met’s model chain and how to create a new simple plant using the Database Manager.

Leonardo

ENVI-met simulation output can be accessed using Leonardo, which offers a wide array of features to analyze the data and visualize the site performance of the model environment.
