I understand you have wiki help. We have looked through it. I am look for specifically how to caluclate the
-- The AVERAGE AREA WEIGHTED WIND velocity for a plan (example particular room, at a particular plane height of 1.2m)
--Does this means we will have to model the geometry by region ?
--We also noticed that we get the Velocity m/s in x,y,z i.e. Vx Vy Vz. However we need an AVERAGE WIND VELOCITY so what way can we get this from the CFD simulated result?
--Do we need to use PYTHOn scripts to achieve this ?
the issues we face now are that Bulk calculation doesn't specify the region we want and xy plot calculates only 2 random chosen points in a plane and not the entire regional plane average velocity.And both of the above give results in Vx Vy & Vz as opposed to Velocity average m/s
This is specific for Code compliance.
Please help us find the result with easy step by step guidance as opposed to a generic wiki help link.
- Create a plane where you want to find the area average velocity
- Right click on the plane and select it as a summary plane
- Go to Results >> Decision center, the summary plane will be mentioned under critical values at the left. Right click and update
- In the output pane at the bottom, choose velocity magnitude and ther you have an average wind velocity
The comment about velocity average and Vx, Vy, Vz isn't very significant. Take the velocity magnitudes of the components to get a single value.
