Wind analysis

MDES offers is a wind analysis as a part of structural engineering services. This could be done as a part of an overall design analysis, or provided as a standalone service. This analysis evaluates the readiness of your structure when it comes to progressive collapse, and other structural failures.

MDES can accurately assess the vulnerability of an existing structure subjected to extreme wind loads. MDES can propose and model retrofit schemes for the structure, comparing the behavior of the structure before and after retrofit. This assessment is done for both structural and non-structural components.

Wind Analysis Services Include:

Testing structural elements and their effect on the integrity of the structure during a critical failure.
Determining the change in internal forces resulting from the loss of structural elements.
Analyzing structural behavior in a 3D environment.
Highlighting global effects including collision and impact of flying debris, and collapse modes.
Simulating the collapse in 3D showing the behavior of each and every element within the structure.
