At present, the wind engineering toolbox consists of wind-tunnel testing of scaled models, limited full-scale testing, field measurements, and mechanical load/pressure testing. The evolution of computational wind engineering (CWE) based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) principles are making the numerical evaluation of wind loads a potentially attractive proposition. This is particularly true in light of the positive development trends in hardware and software technology, as well as… CONTINUE READING
