CFD simulation of the wind over a terrain
I have to perform the simulation of the wind over the terrain of a certain area. I start from a DTED map.
I would like to know which are the steps I have to do in order to get some good results.
Also, the software I wish to use is OpenFOAM.
Thanks a lot,
Do a google search for "bolund experiment" you might get some useful links and hints.
Never hared about it.
Let's try. Thanks a lot.
have a look at http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...-openfoam.html
there was also s.th at http://openfoamwiki.net but I do not have the link
the post http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post256941 is very useful Terrain digital elevation maps (DEMs) => .Obj => STL from STL together with a suiting Blockmesh you can snappyhexmesh you terrain
maybe this is of interest :p ?
thanks a lot.
I will study the links you sent, tonight.
Then I'll let you know.
Keep in touch,
one more question: could you explain how I can pass from the Terrain digital elevation maps (DEMs) to .Obj and then to STL?
I am working hard on the "turbineSitting" tutorial.. And I hope to cope with it as soon as possible!
I do not know how Terrain digital elevation maps (DEMs) are converted to .Obj-files!
But .Obj ->.STL can be converted via any VTK-based Software (for example paraview http://paraview.org or Mayavi (1 or 2)
http://www.vtk.org/doc/release/5.8/html/a00523.html => vtkDEMReader
well it looks like that you can read DEMso you also can write via vtkSTLWriter all within VTK
or MeshLab http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/
