When you start the analysis in the application of RFEM or RSTAB, a batch process starts that places all member, surface, and solid definitions of the model rotated with all relevant coefficients in the numerical wind tunnel of RWIND Basic, starts the CFD analysis, and returns the resulting surface pressures for a selected time step as FE mesh nodal loads or member loads into the respective load cases of RFEM or RSTAB.
These load cases which contain RWIND Basic loads can be calculated and combined with other loads in load combinations and result combinations.
- Where can I adjust the settings of my wind simulation in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9?
- Is it possible to use load transfer surfaces in RFEM 6 for the wind load generation using RWIND?
- How can I open RWIND using the load wizard in RFEM and RSTAB?
Does RWIND 2 also work on a MAC?
- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- What is the meaning of the difference in the checksum of drag forces?
- Is it possible to export RWIND Simulation results into a GIS software or any other external program?
- I saw somewhere that it is possible to set the ground level for a model in RWIND (for example, for a model with a basement). Unfortunately, I cannot find where to set this.
- Is it possible to keep the results from RWIND Simulation when deleting the FE mesh if I only adjust materials or support conditions?
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
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.
