RWIND 2 | Input
To model structures in RWIND Basic, you find a special application in RFEM and RSTAB. Here, you define the wind directions to be analyzed by means of related angular positions about the vertical model axis. At the same time, you define the elevation-dependent wind profile on the basis of a wind standard. In addition to these specifications, you can use the stored calculation parameters to determine your own load cases for a stationary calculation per each angular position.
As an alternative, you can also use the RWIND Basic program manually, without the interface application in RFEM or RSTAB. In this case, RWIND Basic models the structures and terrain environment directly from the imported VTP, STL, OBJ, and IFC files. You can define the height-dependent wind load and other fluid-mechanical data directly in RWIND Basic.
Recommended Wind Tunnel Size Compatible With Eurocode (EN 1991-1-4)
The size of the computational domain (wind tunnel size) is an important aspect on wind simulation that has a significant impact on the accuracy as well as the cost of CFD simulations.
- Is there an option to export the results of drag forces of all zones from RWIND in a table?
- When exporting my model from RFEM to RWIND, I get the message "Warning No. 7731 | Reading of logger file failed." What can I do to start the simulation in RWIND?
- What is the difference between RWIND 2 Basic vs. Pro?
RWIND 2 is a program (digital wind tunnel) for the numerical simulation of wind flows around any building geometries with determination of the wind loads on their surfaces. It can be used as a stand-alone application or used together with RFEM and RSTAB for complete structural analysis and design.
