Wind loads on lightweight structures: Numerical simulation and wind tunnel tests
In this paper basic principles of a numerical computation of fluid-structure interaction will be discussed. Starting point are standard software systems for the simulation of fluid dynamics and structural dynamics. These program systems are adequately extended and coupled in a partitioned solution approach. Results of the presented methods will be compared in detail with wind tunnel experiments for a lightweight membrane construction.
