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.

  • Selecting Objects Integrated into Surfaces

    Selecting Objects Integrated into Surfaces

    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.

  • Contact Solids: Number of integrated objects in contact surfaces...

    Contact Solids: 'Number of integrated objects in contact surfaces...'

    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.

  • Dlubal RFEM 5 - Integrating Objects in Quadrangle Surfaces Automatically

    Integrating Objects in Quadrangle Surfaces Automatically

    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.
