Application of CFD simulation on various irregular-shaped buildings for determining wind forces and interference effects

Mr. Waqar Ismail Shaikh, Dr. Sachin B. Mulay, , ,
Sandip University

Buildings, cooling towers, chimneys, and other tall, thin structures are more vulnerable to wind loads. Wind loads can be increased or decreased by additional structures surrounding these. The interference effect refers to the influence on the primary structure caused by the presence of other structures. The phenomena of interference have acquired importance because of the damage or collapse of structures caused by it. Various experiments and limited computer simulations have studied interference effects on diverse structures. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a better alternative to wind tunnel tests in determining wind loads owing to interference effects on structures. This research considers three structures, two similar structures and one irregular structure such as T-shape with varied wind angles and interfering distances. This study examines various forces and velocity vectors of wind interferences on the structures. Furthermore, using Ansys, a comparative analysis is carried out between Wind Tunnel Test and Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
