When developing a sporting venue, designers must consider a large number of factors. Two important overall considerations are spectator comfort/safety and how the stadium itself could affect the play of the sport - and each has many facets. Anyone who has attended a sporting event in the rain will understand the dampening effect that this factor can have on event enjoyment.
In semi-open stadium design, two of the greatest challenges are limiting wind on the field to avoid affecting play and protecting spectators from winddriven rain. Historically, stadium designers largely ignored these factors because they were unable to determine how their designs would perform until after the venue had been built. Simulation is changing that.
