This verification example compares wind load calculations on a duopitch roof building by means of the ASCE 7-16 standard and by means of CFD simulation in RWIND Simulation. The building is defined according to the sketch and the inflow velocity profile taken from the ASCE 7-16 standard.

This verification example compares wind load calculations on a flat roof building by means of the ASCE 7-16 standard and by means of CFD simulation in RWIND Simulation. The building is defined according to the sketch and the inflow velocity profile taken from the ASCE 7-16 standard.

The verification example describes the steady-state flow around an isolated building (scaled model).The example is given by the Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ). Chosen results (velocity magnitude) are comparedwith the measured values.

A sphere is subjected to uniform flow of viscous fluid. The velocity of the fluid is considered at infinity. The goal is to determine the drag force. The parameters of the problem are set so that the Reynolds number is small and the radius of the sphere is also small, thus the theoretical solution can be reached - Stokes flow (G. G. Stokes 1851).

The verification example compares wind load calculation on the building with duopitch roof by means of the standardEN 1991-1-4 and by means of CFD simulation in RWIND Simulation. The building is defined according to the sketch andthe inflow velocity profile is taken according the standard EN 1991-1-4.

Verify that a beam of different cross-sections made of Alloy 6061-T6 is adequate for the required load, in accord with the Aluminium Design Manual.

Determine the allowable axial compressive strength of a pinned 8 ft long beam of various cross-sections made of Alloy 6061-T6 and laterally restrained to prevent buckling about its weak axis in accord with the Aluminium Design Manual.

Determine the required strengths and effective length factors for the ASTM A992 material columns in the moment frame shown in Figure 1 for the maximum gravity load combination, using LRFD and ASD.

An ASTM A992 W-shape member is selected to carry a dead load of 30.000 kips and a live load of 90.000 kips in tension. Verify the member strength by both LRFD and ASD.
