RWIND Simulation

Which turbulence setting is to be used for numerical wind load generation on buildings?


The program RWIND Simulation provides an optional consideration of the k-ε and k-ω turbulence models for the numerical flow simulation. The necessary turbulence parameters can be manually specified or automatically determined from a user-defined turbulence intensity value. In the standard setting, the turbulence intensity is set to 1%. This value is based on a recommendation from the company CFD Support, which has many years of experience in the field of numerical flow simulation.

In RWIND Simulation, the turbulence model is organized in the 'Parameters of Simulation' menu under the 'Turbulence' tab.

The interface menu in RFEM or RSTAB organizes the turbulence model for the automated calculation of wind loads in the background in the menu 'Simulate and Generate Wind Loads' under the 'Settings' tab.
