Computation of wind loads on a semicircular greenhouse



Computation of wind loads on a semicircular greenhouse



Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics 29: 225-233



Numerically predicted wind loads on a semicircular greenhouse are presented. The effect of deformation of the film cladding was not simulated. Parametric studies of the influences of Reynolds number and terrain roughness on the wind induced pressure distribution around the greenhouse are reported and the pressure distribution at high Reynolds numbers is compared with published full-scale measurements.
