I want to do Wind load calculation On Pole with street light.
please help me
Thanks in advance
Use an external analysis, you can set a velocity in your ambient conditions to simulate a constantly velocity wind.
Add a large rectangular prism to represent the ground, it will be important in this simulation.
You will need to take great care to make sure your mesh is sufficiently fine around the cylindrical parts of the pole. This will be an unsteady flow problem because the bluff bodies that make up the tubes of this light pole will create vortex streets in your wake, that means you will get a lot of vibrations as well as a general load from the drag in the wake.
I tried as per below link.
Solidworks Flow Simulation - YouTube
Can you do that with above attached file.
Thanks in Advanced
Varun, I do not like the methodology in that video for several reasons:
1. The virtual wind tunnel - completely unnecessary. Unless you have a scaled model that you are going to put in a wind tunnel and you just want to verify your CFD results, there's no reason to use such a device. Simply use external flow and resize the computational domain as you see fit.
2. No mesh development. At no point in the video does the presenter mention his mesh or how he set his refinement levels. The mesh is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING to get right in order to have an accurate simulation.
3. No results checking. All the presenter does is look at flow trajectories, which are interpolated by the software. We have no idea how realistic his results are, not that we would have had anything to compare them with.
That video is not a good tutorial in my opinion. If you need tutorials, use the built in examples in SolidWorks: "Help>SolidWoks Simulation>Flow Simulation Online Tutorial".
please see picture is it looks fine or not.
If you are getting hung up on the first screen of the project wizard, you are not ready to run simulations unguided. Please go through some of the basic tutorials before you go any further with your own studies. This software is not simple, you need to have a good understanding of what you're doing before you can get any reliable results from it.
