Numerical Simulation of Wind Pressure Distribution on Structure Roofs with Suspension Solar Panels
This paper presents the results of full-scale numerical wind tunnel tests of wind pressure on structure roofs with suspension solar panels. Solar roof project is popularized in this century. Solar panels are suspended above the structure roof. So the wind load effect on the structure roof is varied. The wind tunnel experiments are often expensive. A 3D model is introduced and solved using ADINA. The wind pressure distribution coefficients are calculated.
