Wind load examples

Here are examples on how you can use Wind Load Generator (28) to create wind loads.

Example 1

In this example, there are concentrated wind loads at the corners of a building.

The loads induced by the wind in the global x direction are multiplied by 3 at both corners of wall 1 (windward wall), and at the other corner of walls 2 and 4 (side walls). The zone widths are defined by using dimensions.

The walls are numbered according to the picking order of the building shape. In this example, points were picked clockwise starting from the bottom left corner of the building.

Example 2

In this example, wind loads vary along the height of the building.

The z profile is defined in terms of pressure factors.
