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. System overview

    Determination of snow bag for height changes on roofs according to EN 1991-1-3

    Annexes are often found on buildings. If the roof levels are not at the same depth, this elevation jump (if more than 0.5 m) must additionally be considered for the snow load assumption.

  2. Wind Force Due to Friction

    The wind, which blows parallel to the surfaces of a structure, can generate friction forces on these surfaces. This effect is mainly important for very large structures.

  3. Figure 01 - Graded Wind Load Over Different Building Heights

    Wind Depending on the Structure Height for Vertical Walls

    The wind loads are regulated according to Eurocode 1 - Actions on structures - part 1-4: General actions - Wind loads. The nationally determined parameters of a respective country can be found in the National Annexes.

  4. Figure 01 - Generate 3D Cell

    Modeling Containers by Generating a 3D Cell

    With the function "Generate Model - Members" → "3D Cell", it is very easy to generate containers (shipping containers, office containers, mobile homes, etc.) with regular and irregular distribution of the cells.
  5. Consideration of the correlation with wind loads

    If the wind load for buildings or structures is to be determined by the simultaneous assumption of aerodynamic pressure and suction coefficients on the windward and leeward sides of the building, the correlation of the wind pressure on zones D and E of the wall surfaces may be taken into account.
  6. Determining Force Coefficient of Resulting Member Loads for Plane Lattice Structures from Wind Load

    This article presents a simple example of a lattice structure to explain how to determine wind loading as a function of the lattice solidity.

  7. Methods of Supporting Plates by Columns

    In the case of plate structures, it is always necessary to consider the realistic definition support conditions. Depending on the way of defining the flexibility of the supports, clear differences may occur in the results.

  8. Loading According to EN 1991-1-4 and Safety Against Overturning of Circular Cylinders

    This article describes the determination of force coefficients by using a wind load and the calculation of a stability factor due to overturning.

  9. Support Conditions for Surface Elastic Foundation

    Soil Model of Foundation Overlap

    previous article presented different variants of surface elastic foundations in addition to the traditional subgrade reaction modulus method. The following article describes another method for surface foundation. This method considers the adjacent ground areas by means of a foundation overlap. In this case, foundation parameters refer to the continuing works by Pasternak and Barwaschow.

  10. Create Round or Angled Corner

    If there are two member ends to be connected, you can easily do this by using the function “Create Round or Angled Corner”.
