Question

Where can I define a wind velocity diagram according to a specific wind standard for the numerical wind tunnel analysis in RWIND Simulation?

Answer

In RWIND Simulation, the wind velocity is organized by means of the height of the wind tunnel inlet in a table, depending on the height coordinates and wind speeds. You can enter the data in this table manually in RWIND, or by using specific function generators.


If you do not create the model directly in RWIND Simulation, but transfer it from RFEM or RSTAB to RWIND Simulation, you can also define the wind velocity diagram in the interface window according to one of the available wind standards:
  • EN 1991-1-4
  • ASCE/SEI 7-16
  • NBC 2015
The wind velocity diagram then results from the respective standard parameters (zone, terrain category, and so on).
