Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
Generally, RFEM automatically detects all objects lying on a surface, which are not used for surface definition. It is possible to select the objects integrated into surfaces using the ‘Select Integrated Objects’ option in the shortcut menu of the relevant surface in Project navigator. In this way, you can easily find in the graphics which objects have already been integrated into a surface, for example.
In RFEM, you can display contact properties between two surfaces by means of contact solids. Among other things, you should ensure, that both contact surfaces of a contact solid have the same integrated objects. Therefore, when modeling the contact surfaces, it is recommended to use the copy function in order to create the second contact surface.
In RFEM, surfaces are automatically connected if they have common boundary lines. If the definition line of a surface is lying in another surface, the line is automatically integrated into the surface, provided that the surface is plane. For quadrangle surfaces, however, the automatic object detection is complex. Therefore, this automatic function is blocked. The integrated objects must be specified manually.
