The Study of Wind Load Characteristics of Round Earth Building Roof Based on Wind Tunnel Test and Numerical Simulation
Since the "Fujian Earth Building" was on the list of the world heritage list, the protecting work of Earth Building gets more and more important. This paper adopts the method combining wind tunnel test and numerical simulation, using CFD software to establish the representative building model of round monolayer Earth Building and get the wind load characteristics in different wind direction. And the wind tunnel tests confirmed the reliability of simulated results. The results provide reference to the protection and wind-resistant design for Earth Building and modern building of Earth Building mode.
