Building and construction

Flows and tides

- planning documentation for constructions near water
Calculate extreme flows and levels based on both historical data and future climate scenarios.

Flood mapping

- plan for constructions close to water
We help you calculate the water level and evaluate the risk of flooding in extreme situations.

Future seawater levels

- support for development planning on the coast in a future climate
Global warming may lead to a general rise in sea levels. Based on climate data we calculate what the local seawater level will be in the future along with the various risk levels involved.

Waves and current conditions

- documentation for the dimensioning of harbour facilities and objects in open water
Surveys of local wave and current conditions, with different types of solutions depending on the object and the level of ambition.

Erosion of riverbanks and bottom sediment

- in the event of changes to current conditions
SMHI's expertise in water dynamics identifies erosion areas in watercourses, lakes and along the coast, with the help of advanced numerical models or rough calculations, all based on the client's needs and requirements regarding accuracy.

HBV/IHMS

- a conceptual hydrological model for calculations of, for example, discharge forecasts
The HBV model is a well-known model for the calculation and modelling of flows. IHMS is a user interface for the model which makes the modelling work easier.

Wind power on land

- we help you plan new wind power plants
We offer technical solutions for all types of wind power projects, based on our long experience.

Wind study

- for planning of settlements/housing/buildings etc.
Are you considering how your constructions will affect the wind climate near patios, walkways, entrances, play areas and balconies? A preliminary wind study will provide you with answers to your questions in relation to where the wind blows the most/least around the new building.

Wind loads

- the impact of the wind on buildings
For new constructions, it's important to take the wind's dimensioned loads into consideration. Nearby buildings and topography is also taken into consideration, as well as to periodic vortex shedding which can create oscillations in high buildings.
