Wind Analysis

Overview

Macrostatic WIND is a reliable and user-friendly software that calculates the wind loads acting on each surface of the rectangular structure in detail according to European standards.

Wind load is one of the loads that change depending on time and has an important effect on the structures. These effects are most accurately determined by the Macrostatic WIND depending on the location of the building, the meteorological data of the region and the type of terrain.

 

Macrostatic Wind determines the wind load in accordance with EN 1991-1-4 also determines wind regions on structure.

Interface

  • Thanks to user-friendly nature of the program it is so easy to calculate wind forces for different heights.

  • The required inputs are dimensions of the building, terrain type which is chosen from predefined types, and speed of the wind.

  • Also for advanced users custom turbulence and orography factor can be defined under the advanced tab. For more information about the advanced factor you can look at Eurocode 1991. 

  • After the information has been entered to get the results simply press the Calculate Button.

Results

The results are represented in an another card that has two tables and the shape of the building. 

 

Shape of the building is shown in wind areas which is hovered with a mouse or tapped highlights the corresponding column in the tables.

 

Reason there is two tables is each one of them represents the pressures for a 1m2 area when other table is for 10m2 area. 

The columns are separated by different wind areas which have been given as horizontal dimensions in the header of the table. Rows gives the maximum forces in the given spacing.
