Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

With the stand -alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flows around simple or complex structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.

The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.

The Geo-Zone Tool, located on the Snow Load, Wind Speed, and Seismic Load Maps webpage, includes zoning maps to quickly determine snow loads, wind speeds, and seismic data according to ASCE 7, NBC, Eurocode, and other international standards.

The search function, based on Google Maps, establishes the corresponding location to determine the following:

  • Snow:
    - Snow load zone
    - Characteristic value of snow load sk
  • Wind:
    - Wind zone
    - Fundamental basic wind velocity vb,0
    - Basic velocity pressure qb
  • Seismic Actions:
    - Seismic zone
    - Reference peak ground acceleration agR
    - Subsoil class, and so on
  • Tornados (USA only):
    - Design wind speed V

The print function shows all initial values for snow, wind, and seismic actions which are necessary for load assumptions. Therefore, special areas in the Harz, Deister, or the North German Plain are included in the database.

The print function provides you with an overview of all input values for snow, wind, and seismic actions required for the load calculations.

Although the data can be manually transferred to external programs, an additional web application is available for the automated data transfer.

The Geo-Zone Tool operates with map data and services provided by Google LLC. These Google services are not provided free of charge, which requires all users to assume this financial responsibility.
