Analysis of Wind Load Effect on the Roof of Low-Rise Building in the Mountain Terrain
The wind conditions of the low-rise building in the mountain terrain are different because they have the characteristics of different landforms. When the typhoon comes, the possibility of structural damage is increasing by the negative effects of wind in the special topography. By establishing a sine function of outline of the hill, this paper makes a CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) numerical simulation about the low-rise building around the hills with four different height. Using ANSYS-CFX software as calculating platform, it put forward the roof wind load effect of the Low-rise building by study the characteristics of the hill, the law of wind pressure distribution and the influence to roof wind load by wind direction and the high of the hill, the conclusions which can provide a reference for wind-resistant design have practical significance.
