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.
In current literature, the formulas to determine internal forces and deformations manually are usually specified without considering the shear deformation. Especially in timber construction, the deformations resulting from shear force are often underestimated.
The Project Manager is installed by default when installing RFEM and RSTAB and manages all projects and calculation files. In the Project Manager, you can link different projects to have a clear overview of the program files.
In Germany, DIN EN 1991-1-4 with the National Annex DIN EN 1991-1-4/NA regulates the wind loads. The standard applies to civil engineering works up to an altitude of 300 m.
In Germany, DIN EN 1991-1-3 with the National Annex DIN EN 1991-1-3/NA regulates the snow loads. The standard applies to civil engineering works at an altitude of up to 1,500 m above sea level.
Long-span glued-laminated beams are usually supported by a reinforced concrete column with torsional restraints.
For wide-span ceilings, the vibration design of cross‑laminated timber plates is often governing. The advantage of the lighter material of timber over concrete turns into a disadvantage because a high mass material is advantageous for a low natural frequency.
