KB 001852 | How to Comply With the Requirements of the Eurocode Using the Application of CFD in Wind Load Calculation
First Steps with RFEM
The importance of wind-structure interaction has risen in recent years due to an increasing number of structures of varying heights and shapes. Experimental and numerical approaches are used to determine the interaction. Many structures are being evaluated in wind tunnels as part of the experimental investigations. In this approach, the impacts caused by wind loads may be calculated. Large-scale structures, such as tall buildings, bridges, and stadiums, benefit greatly from wind tunnel testing, but they are very expensive and time-consuming methods. Structural wind loads are also determined using CFD and experimental investigations, which are cheaper and faster methods.

Creating a validation example for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a critical step in ensuring the accuracy and reliability of simulation results. This process involves comparing the outcomes of CFD simulations with experimental or analytical data from real-world scenarios. The objective is to establish that the CFD model can faithfully replicate the physical phenomena it is intended to simulate. This guide outlines the essential steps in developing a validation example for CFD simulation, from selecting a suitable physical scenario to analyzing and comparing the results. By meticulously following these steps, engineers and researchers can enhance the credibility of their CFD models, paving the way for their effective application in diverse fields such as aerodynamics, aerospace, and environmental studies.

- How can I connect surfaces to other surfaces or members in a hinged/semi-rigid way? What are Line Hinges and Line Releases?
- How is the dimension for an equivalent round section calculated in the Timber Design add-on?
- I have a 3D model and try to split it up into "walls" and "surfaces" with the Building Model and to calculate them separately. However, my structural system becomes unstable then. What can be the reason?
