Verification Examples

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 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 compared with the measured values.

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

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