HUBOVÁ NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF WIND ON BUILDING STRUCTURES Jozef ŠIMIČEK Research field: Statics and Dynamics Fluids mechanics Olga HUBOVÁ Research field: Statics and Dynamics Aero-elasticity Address: Department of Structural Mechanics Faculty of Civil Engineering Slovak University of Technology Radlinského Bratislava ABSTRACT KEY WORDS The paper deals with the theoretical foundations of laminar and turbulent fluid flows in a boundary layer and the effects of wind on constructions. The application section describes the flow of compressible Newtonian fluid as a system of partial differential equations (the Navier-Stokes equation) and solves these equations using FEM at each time step. Simplifying a 3D task to a plane problem and ignoring vorticity allows for the formulation of a wind flow on an open terrain and the effects of wind on a barrier. Two approaches to the numerical solution of wind flows are presented: one involves the Fluent commercial program to obtain the velocity field and pressure at a constant wind speed in an inlet region and the other approach involves the development of the SIXIS specific software program for the purpose of this thesis which modifies the wind velocity profile according to EN The results obtained - velocity fields around obstacles and the wind pressure coefficients on a barrier are processed and compared in a table. Laminar and turbulent flow Newtonian fluid Finite element method Numerical simulation of flows Streamlines Wind speed Wind pressure coefficient. 1 INTRODUCTION In the aerodynamics of structures it is necessary to determine the wind load which is represented by a simplified set of pressures or forces for the whole structure or for the structural parts. Newly developed numerical Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods for the solution of flow problems help us to simulate and study characteristics of the wind flow pressure and wind velocity distributions around an object. Due to the complex topography of surrounding buildings which modifies wind flow it is necessary to use both experimental and numerical solutions for the definition of boundary conditions. 2 BASIC PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS In order to derive equations governing the motion of fluids the following properties are taken into account: compressibility viscosity transmission properties. The following concepts are introduced to describe fluid properties: the ideal perfectly liquid viscous Newtonian and real fluid. An ideal fluid is understood as a fluid which is perfectly incompressible with no viscous friction. A perfectly liquid fluid is understood as a fluid which can only be subjected to normal stresses. The flow of such fluids can be described by the so-called Euler equations. For viscous fluids both normal and shear stresses are applied. Real fluids however are compressible and exhibit viscous friction. The flow of real fluids is described by the so-called Navier- Stokes equations. Unlike incompressible fluids the density of flow in compressible fluids can vary from place to place. Given by a fluid s equation of state density is correlated with the pressure and possibly with the temperature; therefore any change in pressure SLOVAK UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY

2 corresponds to a change in density. The effect of compressibility can be determined and quantified by the coefficient of fluid compressibility: There is a distinction between an isothermal and an isoentropic compression. If the derivative in the expression for the fluid compressibility factor under consideration assumes a constant temperature then the coefficient d describes so-called isothermal compressibility. In the case of where it assumes a constant entropy then the coefficient ä describes so-called isoentropic compressibility. The derivative which determines the value of this coefficient is a function of the speed of sound [1]. (1). (2) Dynamic viscosity h generally depends on the pressure temperature and physical properties of the Newtonian fluid and results from the linear relationship between the velocity gradient and shear stress. (3) where is the surface normal vector i.e. a unit vector that is perpendicular to a surface. The dynamic viscosity to the density ratio of a fluid is called kinematic viscosity move from place to place; thus by changing their position; they change the momentum as well and may cause an exchange of thermal energy [3]. 2.1 Classification of a flow While a flow is being monitored one can observe: the flow s dependence on time the nature of the kinematic motion of particles internal mixing motion of a real viscous fluid the ratio of the velocity to the speed of sound. In terms of time we classify fluid flows into a steady flow known as stationary flow and an unsteady flow also known as nonstationary flow. For a steady flow we assume that the state characteristics of pressure density and temperature will not change over time. For non-stationary flow we assume the state characteristics will change over time. In terms of the kinematic motion of particles we classify flows into a streamline flow when we assume that the fluid particles will only slide along and a vortex flow which has additional rotational movements of the particles. Laminar flow (Fig. 2) occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers with no disruption between the layers. At low velocities the fluid tends to flow without lateral mixing. Turbulent flow (Fig. 3) which occurs at higher velocities where eddies or small packets of fluid particles form leads to lateral mixing of a random character. The mixing happens due to the transfer of momentum across the streamlines. The coefficient of the viscosity of liquids decreases with increasing temperatures while that of gases increases. This different character of the dependence of dynamic viscosity on the temperature indicates differences in the mechanism of the internal friction of liquids and gases.

3 3 FLOW EQUATIONS The essence of fluid flow is a change in the position of fluid particles in space. The main task of kinematics is to describe the fluid motion in time and space and describe the velocity field and the acceleration field of particles at a specific point on the jet space examined. The instantaneous state of the flow on each point of the space is uniquely determined by the particle velocity vector at any given location in a given time. The valid conditions for the fluid flow can be formulated by: the balance of the mass the balance of the momentum the balance of the energy. 3.1 Time approximation for a fluid flow model For an ideal fluid flow we would consider at each time point t the validity of relations (4) - (6). For a linear approximation of the acceleration we can write: A case of compressible Newtonian fluid flow is assumed. The equation of continuity for such a case is determined in the form of a vector:. (4) From the balance of the momentum follows: (5) From the balance of the energy follows:. (7) 3.2 Laminar and turbulent flow where: is the density of the mass is the pressure field across a border inside a closed volume is the power of thermal energy E is the conserved energy h is the dynamic viscosity of the fluid l is the second coefficient of the viscosity for for i = j i j = (6) is the velocity vector is the force field is the heat flow For the planar along the streamlines of the moving laminar incompressible fluid flow zero vorticity can be assumed.. (8) By introducing the scalar stream function which is based on the idea of streamlines it is possible to express the wind velocity components:. (9) By substituting the velocity components expressed by the derivative of the stream function (9) in the condition of zero vorticity (8) we 30 NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF WIND ON BUILDING STRUCTURES

4 can assume the equation for the laminar flow as follows:. (10) In areas of the extreme gradient of the velocity vector behind a barrier a backflow due to the vorticity of the wind and turbulent wind flow can be expected (Fig. 4). Fig. 4 Wind velocity profile of laminar flow boundary layer and backflow. For planar stationary incompressible fluid flow equations of motion will take the form: Together with the equation of continuity. (11) (12) we will obtain three differential equations for three unknown variables p. 4. EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS To verify the accuracy of the numerical solutions it is necessary to obtain the values of wind pressure and velocity by other methods. Conducting experimental measurements either in wind tunnels or directly by measuring in situ using real structures is the best method to verify them. Extensive experiments were carried out in situ at the Silsoe Research Institute of the University of Auckland [7]. Detailed measurements of the pressure on the surface of a cube at the speed of 5 frames per second were performed on a cube with dimensions of 6 x 6 x 6 m (Fig. 5). Fig. 5 Cube at the Silsoe Research Institute. The external pressure coefficient c p is usually used for a quantitative evaluation of a pressure distribution in the building industry to determine the effect of wind on the external surfaces of a building. It generally depends on the shape of the structures the wind velocity profile and the position of the structure. The local value of the pressure coefficient for a given velocity profile can be expressed by the relationship: (13) where: is the experimentally measured or calculated (using FEM) local wind pressure value at the height y r [kg. m 3 ] is the air density is the horizontal wind speed component corresponding to the measured value of the local pressure which is not affected by the barrier. It is possible to see the distribution of the wind pressure coefficients for various surfaces of the Silsoe cube in Figure 6. The external wind pressure coefficient c p as expressed in the form of civil engineering codes applies only to the velocity profile of a wind resulting from the agreed-upon measurements of its average speed.

NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF FLOWS For the design of structures and the assessment of wind effects on a building structure it is necessary to obtain information about the wind load and distribution of the load on specific areas of the surface or the whole structure. It is possible to find the wind velocity and pressure by means of numerical simulation. In this article numerical methods for a solution of averaged Navier- Stokes equations are discussed. The FLUENT and SIXIS computer programs based on FEM were used for the numerical simulation of two-dimensional fluid flows. The result of this computer-modeled example is a pressure distribution on saddle-shaped obstacles. Fig. 8 Wind field and streamlines from the FLUENT program. 5.1 Calculation using the FLUENT program The numerical solution to determine the velocity and pressure fields of a wind flow with a saddle-shaped barrier and with a constant wind speed in an inlet region was first calculated with the Fluent commercial program. A planar 2D model for the numerical simulation of turbulent flows with an air density of r = 125 kg. m 3 and a dynamic viscosity of h = kg. m 1. s 1 was applied. A turbulent flow near the walls was assumed and boundary conditions of the following types were used: inlet region - constant wind velocity; outlet region - the velocity perpendicular to the streamline direction is zero; the wind speed on the terrain is zero (Fig. 7). For the upper border at a height of 100m the wind velocity is constant and zero. The wind velocity perpendicular to the surfaces of the barrier is zero. The results obtained from the FLUENT commercial program are illustrated in Figs It is possible to see the streamlines forming the boundary layers on Fig. 8 and 9. The distribution of the wind pressure around the obstacle is shown on Fig. 10. The distance from the barrier where the velocity profile is not affected by it is approximately equal to the height of the computer - modeled area. Fig. 9 Wind velocity from the FLUENT program in [m/s]. 5.2 Calculation using the SIXIS program and comparison A Visual Basic program was developed for the numerical method to solve the problem of planar fluid flows. This program is based on relationships (8) - (10) of an ideal fluid without any heat exchange and deals with horizontal undisturbed wind flows in an open terrain (Terrain cat. II). 32 NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF WIND ON BUILDING STRUCTURES

Boundary condition: Inlet region: wind velocity profile according to EN (see expression (12)) for the different terrain categories Fig. 11 Wind profiles due to STN EN for different basic wind velocities. (14) Where: z 0 is the roughness length for open terrain Terrain category II z 0 =0.05m Boundary interval y min = 2m y max = 100m For the interval the wind velocity profile is constant with the value. The wind profiles used which are plotted in Fig. 11 assume different fundamental values of the basic wind speed: for the saddleshaped obstacle the fundamental values of the wind velocity are: m. s 1 m. s 1. The wind velocity perpendicular to the surfaces of the barrier is zero. Outlet region: parallel streamlines; the wind speed on the terrain is zero. It is possible to see the streamlines and the calculation model s area with the obstacle in Fig.12. A comparison of the results the external pressure coefficients for a windward area obtained by different methods - is given in Tab. 1. Tab. 1 Comparison of the external wind pressure coefficients. STN EN Measurements at Silsoe RI Fig. 12 Streamlines from the SIXIS program. 6. CONCLUSION The numerical methods presented for the solution to the flow problem and the numerical simulation of the fluid flows together with the analysis and parametric studies will allow engineers and designers to get a good picture of the distribution of the wind pressure around obstacles. The SIXIS program calculates the wind pressure coefficients on the windward side of structures for different wind speed profiles. This approach represents a better fitting description of a wind s natural behavior.
