RWIND 2 | Output
By solving the numerical flow problem, you can obtain the following results on and around the model:
- Pressure on structure surface
- Coefficient Cp distribution on the structure surfaces
- Pressure field about the structure geometry
- Velocity field about the structure geometry
- Turbulence k-ω field about the structure geometry
- Turbulence k-ε field about the structure geometry
- Velocity vectors about the structure geometry
- Streamlines about the structure geometry
- Forces on member-shaped structures that were originally generated from member elements
- Convergence diagram
- Direction and size of the flow resistance of the defined structures
Despite this amount of information, RWIND 2 remains clearly arranged, as is typical for the Dlubal programs. You can specify freely definable zones for a graphic evaluation. Voluminously displayed flow results about the structure geometry are often confusing – you know the problem for sure. That's why RWIND Basic provides freely movable section planes for the separate display of the "solid results" in a plane. For the 3D branched streamline result, you have an option to select between a static and an animated display in the form of moving line segments or particles. This option helps you to represent the wind flow as a dynamic effect.
You can export all results as a picture or, especially for the animated results, as a video.
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.
