hi, thank you for the reply. Since, I am planning to analysis the wind pressure on different roof shape. Since, I dont have much idea about CFD model. What will be your suggestion in modelling the roof in CFD. Hear from you.

The two most popular are CFD and Fluent.

My personal favorite is Fluent as it's very powerful. But CFX isn't too far behind in terms of capability. I think CFX wins the popularity contest.

Some things to think about:

is the simulation a steady-state type problem or transient/unsteady?
incompressible / compressible
is the flow laminar / turbulent

for turbulent flows, it helps tremendously to know beforehand what others have used

Hello,
I am planning to use one ANSYS software for my research on the Windstorm damage on the Traditional Roof. The height of building is around 15m. I would like to analysis with following condition
1. With parapate wall in the attic(close air passage)
2. Porous attic(the clear height between roof floor and eve of roof is around 1.5m open area)
3. Partially porous(i.e small wall and also timber plank use to close the open between the eve of roof and roof floor level)

Please suggest me which ANSYS tool will be useful as per my condition.

regards
