We model processes and the behaviour of infrastructure
We create mathematical simulation models for all the physical, chemical and biological processes related to the water cycle, as well as for industrial processes, traffic patterns, the behaviour of structures and soil-structure interaction (SSI). At Ayesa, we have extensive technical experience with the various aspects involved in the water cycle, particularly those relevant to engineering and architecture, including climatology, water resources, extreme events such as floods and droughts, sedimentology and hydrogeology.
We work with numerous GIS-integrated hydroinformatics modelling tools, which offer advanced map processing (raster, TIN, etc.) and statistical analysis of time series (data mining, genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic, multifractals, etc.). These allow us to simulate and assess all hydrological and hydraulic components necessary, including indications of climate change. In the field of transport, we specialise in modelling vehicle traffic at a macro, meso and micro level, and simulating rail operations and pedestrian traffic patterns in buildings and at stations using specialist software.
In the field of geotechnics, we study the behaviour of earth materials and their interaction with all kinds of underground structures, using the latest geostatistics methodologies in order to establish the various mechanical and hydraulic properties of soils and rocks relevant to our projects. Once this data has been obtained, we apply complex mathematical models which allow us to carry out numerical simulations of the behaviour of earth materials, and create 2D and 3D numerical models that enable us to optimise geotechnics work and structural elements, as well as design measures to mitigate the geotechnical risks inherent in the materials modelled.
