Validation of Computational Fluid Dynamics, Turbulent Flow Approach, for Wind Flow around Building

Dr. Salah R. Al Zaidee [4] | Alfadhel B. Kasim [2]


Abstract: The wind loading is outcome of the pressure distribution on the structure in general. Pressure distributions due to wind are motivated by a wide range of aspects including urban surroundings, approach-flow conditions, and structure geometry. Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD, is an important tool for calculating wind pressure coefficients, Cp, on structure cladding. This paper is established on a great number of CFD simulations to assess wind pressure coefficient. CFD simulations were carried out with Wind Load Simulator tool that found in Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis software. The study validation process is based on a comparison between CFD simulation results and experimental wind tunnel results that founded in the literature.
