Why Dlubal Software?
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 type of the result display has been extended with the isolines. Result values can now be displayed on isolines.
Results of solids can be displayed as colored 3D points in finite elements.
Extension of the static analysis settings with the "Calculation diagrams" option for creating the user-defined calculation diagrams.To record and display a relation between the various calculation results, you can use the calculation diagrams. They can be created and opened using "Static Analysis Settings," for example, via "Calculation" → "Static Analysis Settings."
For stress-strain analyses, it is possible to define gray zones for nonrelevant value ranges in the result panel.
Logical connection of the manual chapters with the "F1" help function. With the "F1" help function, the program opens the corresponding manual chapter from the currently viewed menu tab.
Extension of the surface result tables with regard to the stress and strain results by thickness layer.
Extension of the solid definition with the "Grid for Results" option for organizing grid points in the solid space. Among other things, the center of gravity can be set as the origin. There is also the option to activate or deactivate the visibility of the grid for numerical results in the Navigator display under Basic Objects.
If you want to consider other loads as masses in addition to the static loads, you can do it for nodal, member, line, and surface loads. This can be done by selecting Mass as a load type when defining the load of interest. For such loads, it is possible to define a mass or mass components in the X, Y, and Z directions. For nodal masses, you also can specify moments of inertia X, Y, and Z in order to model more complex mass points.
It is often necessary to neglect masses, especially when the output of the modal analysis is to be used by the seismic analysis, where 90% of the effective modal mass in each direction is required for the calculation. Thus, you can neglect masses in all fixed nodal and line supports so that the program will automatically deactivate the masses associated with them, but you can also manually select the objects for which the masses should be neglected in the modal analysis. The latter is shown in the image, where a user-defined selection is preferred, and the objects as well as their associated mass components are selected to neglect the masses.
As shown in the image, imperfections can also be taken into account when defining a modal analysis load case. The imperfection types applicable in the modal analysis are the notional loads from load case, initial sway via table, static deformation, buckling mode, dynamic mode shape, and a group of imperfection cases.
