Paper Title:
Parametric Numerical Simulation of Mean Wind Loading on Stadium Cantilevered Roofs
  Abstract

Studies on the characteristics of the mean wind load acting on the cantilevered roofs are carried out systematically by CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) numerical simulation. The influences of some factors, including the incoming flow condition, inclination angle of roofs and the ventilation rate above grandstand, on mean wind loading are investigated. It is found that the terrain type and grandstand type are not significantly influence the mean wind loads on the roof structure; The wind force acting on roof is increased with roof pitch; Sub-roof venting is found to reduce uplifts by no more than 12%; Introducing a similar shaped grandstand upstream is found to significantly decrease the wind loading. Based on these results, an empirical equation for the calculation of mean wind loading is derived for the reference of designers.
