RWIND 2 | Calculation

RWIND Basic uses a numerical CFD model (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to simulate wind flows around your objects using a digital wind tunnel. The simulation process determines specific wind loads acting on your model surfaces from the flow result around the model.

A 3D volume mesh is responsible for the simulation itself. For this, RWIND Basic performs an automatic meshing on the basis of freely definable control parameters. For the calculation of wind flows, RWIND Basic provides you with a stationary solve and RWIND Pro provides a transient solver for incompressible turbulent flows. Surface pressures resulting from the flow results are extrapolated onto the model for each time step.
