Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

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

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

  1. Stability Analysis of Two-Dimensional Structural Components on Example of Cross-Laminated Timber Wall 3

    As an alternative to replacement bar method in this paper, the possibility will be explained to determine the internal forces of the risk of bending wall 2nd order theory taking into account imperfections and then perform a measurement of the cross section for bending and pressure.

  2. Stability Analysis of Two-Dimensional Structural Components on Example of Cross-Laminated Timber Wall 2

    The following article describes design using the equivalent member method according to [1] Section 6.3.2, performed on the example of cross-laminated timber wall susceptible to buckling described in Part 1 of this article series. The buckling analysis will be performed as a compressive stress analysis with reduced compressive strength. For this, the instability factor kc is determined, which depends primarily on the component slenderness and the support type.

  3. Stability Analysis of Two-Dimensional Structural Components on Example of Cross-Laminated Timber Wall 1

    Basically, you can design structural components made of cross-laminated timber in the RF-LAMINATE add-on module. Since the design is a pure elastic stress analysis, it is necessary to additionally consider the stability issues (flexural buckling and lateral-torsional buckling).

  4. Consideration of Effects From Second Order Theory

    In RFEM and RSTAB, the internal forces of individual load combinations are determined according to the second‑order analysis by default. If you use the RF‑CONCRETE add‑on module for stability analysis of reinforced concrete columns, you can change the calculation method of LCs to the linear static analysis, since the effects of the second‑order analysis are already considered in the calculation according to the model column method in RF‑CONCRETE Columns (nominal curvature method).

  5. Considering Imperfections

    In the world of construction engineering, the word “imperfections” has a specific meaning. It describes the imperfections of a structure or the deviation of a structural component from its ideal form due to manufacturing.
