Computational Wind Engineering (CWE) is the application of the computational methods including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations to solve the wind engineering problems.
CWE for Wind Climate Analysis
CWE can be used to evaluate the wind conditions at a complex terrain. Through the CWE, we can study the wind in local environments, estimate the design wind speed and turbulence characteristics with respect to the various design scenarios.
CWE for Building Engineering
CWE can be used for the design of buildings against strong wind. Wind loads and responses on the buildings and facades, pedestrian wind environment around buildings, comfort on the building balconies are studied through the CWE analysis.
CWE for Bridge Engineering
CWE can be used to evaluate and improve the wind-resistant performance of bridges. Wind loads and responses are estimated through the CWE analysis. Recently, the flutter and vortex-induced vibration analysis are actively conducted using the fluid-structure-interaction (FSI) method.
