Wirth Research’s Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) services can help our clients better understand how to improve energy efficiency within the supermarket environment.

WR store modelling services combine the expertise from wind microclimate studies, natural ventilation and refrigeration to create a virtual model of the store within its real-world environment. A three-dimensional model for the store internals, site and surrounding terrain, combined with realistic atmospheric boundary and store HVAC&R component control allows a step change in store performance understanding. The WR store model provides customer comfort measurements along with energy usage predictions for all modelled systems within the store. Clients can understand the impact of atmospheric temperature, wind speed and direction will affect the store environment, fridge performance and HVAC performance.
