Autonomous HVAC CFD — Converts Building Models to “CFD Computational Models”

From the Autodesk App Store:


The application converts the real building model to the “CFD computational model” autonomously and does not need any CFD expertise or prior CFD knowledge. 

AHC is a cloud-based CFD SaaS product that generates accurate CFD results without any CFD inputs asked from the user. CFD model is built automatically while creating the BIM configuration using an in-build BIM designer.  Users can define design configurations and scenarios and quickly do a design exploration to estimate thermal comfort for each situation. The product is validated against many test cases.

App is powered by Autodesk® Forge. Revit IO powers the BIM model creation. We will be also supporting Autodesk Revit import and export in the upcoming version
