Question

How can I control the wind load distribution on tower sides in the RF‑/TOWER Loading add-on module?

Answer

A user-defined wind load distribution is not provided in the Eurocode. In order to implement a user-defined wind load distribution in the RF‑/TOWER Loading add-on module, this can only be done after conversion to DIN, for example, DIN 4131:1993‑11, see Figure 01, Window "1.3 Wind Load - Part 1."

Figure 01 - Wind Load - Selection of Standard

Then, you can select the user-defined distribution in Window 1.4 "Wind Load - Part 2," and define it in the adjacent table, see Figure 02.
