Starting from the Scratch

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

Building and Materials

In this video we show the different kinds of materials that ENVI-met offers. In addition, you get an introduction on 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 wall types. We also explain the functionality of the multiple node model and how to average parameter values to simulate walls containing more than 3 materials.

 

Soils and Profiles

In this video we cover soils and soil profiles and show how both work in the Database Manager as well as how to create your own custom soils and profiles in ENVI-met.

We also explain all of the parameters that define soils and soil profiles.

Simple Plants

In this video we cover simple plants and show how they work in the Database Manager. In the process, we also explain the parameters that define simple plants in ENVI-met.

 

Façade and Roof Greening

In this video we explain façade and roof greening and show how greening profiles work in the Database Manager as well as explain the parameter values associated with both the soil/substrate layer and the vegetation layer.

Pollutions and Sources, Part I

In this video we explain how pollution and pollution source profiles work in ENVI-met. Source profiles allow the user to create and analyze particulate generating sources within the model area.

Pollutions and Sources, Part II

In this second part of the Pollution and Sources feature, we explain the “Traffic Tools” portion of a pollution source profile. This feature allows the user to create a specific and accurate pollution source profile based on custom traffic patterns and vehicle pollution values.

Albero: Overview

In this video we will begin explaining the 3-D plant modeling program Albero. We cover the basic layout and parameters that has to offer and give an overview of how the program works and how to interact with the various features.

Albero: Custom 3D Plants

In this video we explain how to create your own 3D plant using Albero. We cover all of the different options Albero offers in order to create a new 3D plant as well as how to create custom root profiles.

Albero: Plant Tools

In this video we explain some of the advanced tools Albero offers within the Plant Tools tab. A variety of important tools are explained from scaling plants to new sizes and heights, generating or subtracting leaf structure around plants, and modifying the yearly leaf structure changes plants experience through the seasons.

Spaces: Part I

In this video we explain some of the settings surrounding the creation of a model area in Spaces.

A variety of important parameters and features are explained – from setting the size and resolution of the model area to referencing the model inspector window for detailed information regarding your model area.

Spaces: Part II

In this video we explain how to place objects like buildings and vegetation into your model area.

We also describe the 3D View and how to use this mode to interact with individual building façade cells in order to, for example, place windows on buildings.

Leonardo: Creating Outdoor Maps

In this video we explain how to visually display and analyse simulation output data in the form of output maps in Leonardo.

We also show the various settings and parameters available to customize your output maps as well as how to display wind vectors on top of any output map you may create.

Leonardo: Creating Comparison and 3D Maps

In this video we explain how to create comparison output maps as well as 3D output maps.

We also show how to analyse single grid cells and export your analysis results.
