I am currently working on project as part of my university degree. I am trying to investigate the aerodynamic benefits of adding a tapered helical form to the CAARC building.
For this i am hoping to investigate the base overturning moments and the pressure coefficients at 2/3 of the building height. If possible could someone provide me with some advice on how i can set these calculation up in Sim Scale. I believe i have the base overturning moment force correct? I am not sure however, on how to set up a way for a pressure measurement at 2/3H on both the windward face and leeward face.
Side note: Any help on what value to normalise all the coefficients (Base overturning moment coefficient and pressure coefficient) would be brilliant!
Thank you for the help with this, when using these inputs what formula is used to normalise the values obtained?
Is the formula the same as that used in the research paper i mentioned or does simscale use an alternative formula?
I was just wondering if it would be possible for you to provide advice on my current model that I am working on. I am trying to study the effects of tapering and adding helical forms to the CAARC building.
I wish to assess the base overturning moments (coefficients), the total drag of the building and finally the pressure acting on the façade on all building faces.
