The study shows to which extent the new flying roof can protect passengers from wind and bad weather. Weatherpark analyzed wind conditions and behaviour of wind-driven rain in the surroundings of the flying roof. A wind climatology was developed as a basis for the flow analysis. For this purpose, Weatherpark operated a weather station at Praterstern. For the estimation of wind-driven rain conditions a climatology of precipitation was combined with wind conditions. As a result, Weatherpark could show how weather conditions move precipitation beneath the flying roof and to which extent waiting passengers would be affected.
