Hello everyone,

I am using Autodesk CFD Ultimate (Simulation CFD) in my diploma thesis, to evaluate wind loads on a solar panel array, in order to compare them with the loads we calculate through the Eurocode for Canopy Roofs.

I have run my cfd analysis but i get a wind pressure 0.5kPa while through Eurocode we calculate 2.3kPa. It is a huge difference and i do not know what is wrong with my CFD model.

I am a new user of CFD so i would like some help. I am using the SST k-e turbulence model.

Can someone help ?
