Wind Tunnel flow simulation results

Hi guys,

 

I am trying to use a solidworks wind tunnel to simulate wind forces on a concrete panel (7m x 3m) . I have 40m/s average wind velocities. Results diagram chart shows that at the very face of concrete panel, wind forces approximately half of the applied wind forces. From manual computations, wind forces at the face would be the same as everywhere else. Would it be correct results that wind forces at the face reduced by half?

 

Many thanks,

 

SK
