Abstract

2-D numerical simulation of wind loads on low-rise building has been carried out. Numerical simulation is carried out on TTU building (13.7m x 9.1m in plan with 4.0m eave height flat roof) to check effect of influence of turbulence models used in ANSYS FLUENT software package. Also validation is done with available literature to check the results of ANSYS FLUENT software. The present study has a goal to explain the application of CFD to find wind generated pressure distribution on a particular structure using ANSYS FLUENT 13.0.Numerical simulation on flat roof (TTU building) is carried out to obtain wind loading effects. Results obtained from present study are validated with past data available. The numerical results shows a good agreement with the available data. The computed pressure coefficients have been validated with past numerical results of TTU building model.
