Various Wind Profiles by Wind Direction

How can I consider various wind profiles for various wind directions?


The load wizard "Wind Simulations" integrated in the program provides support for generating wind simulation load cases. The wizard generates a wind simulation load case with a complete model input for user-defined angle settings for the RWIND calculation in the background.

If you want to apply a different wind profile, depending on the angle, the wizard allows for several entries. To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the Wind Simulation Load Wizard.
  2. In the first entry, define a wind profile to be considered for a specific angular position segment.
  3. Generate another entry with another wind profile for the corresponding angular position segment.
  4. Repeat Step 3 until all segments are covered.
