Comparison of Experimental and Numerical Results for Mean Pressure Coefficients

CONCLUSIONS - I Although it is obtained convenient pressure coefficient (Cp) values between experimental measurements and numerical computations, there are some inconveniences at some points. These deviations mostly occurred at roof corner points and back surfaces. Reasons for those differences are grid structure, mesh dimension, sample space dimension, insufficiency of selected turbulence model and could not making experimentally sensitive measures at these points. In numerical computation initially the effect of mesh structure is investigated. In numerical computations to investigate the effect of turbulence model 6, turbulence models (k-ε, RNG, Grimaji, Zero-equation, New k-ε, Shi-Zhu-Lumley) are tested at ANSYS-Flotron. Zero-equation turbulence model gives more accurate results comparing to other turbulence models. Hence Zero-equation model is used at all numerical computations.

For 10 0 roof slope critical suction pressure coefficients are obtained for 0 0 and 30 0 wind directions at x/s=0,1 and x/s=0,5, for 60 0 and 90 0 wind directions at x/s=0,5. For 20 0 and 30 0 roofs slope critical pressure coefficients are obtained for 0 0, 30 0, 60 0 and 90 0 wind directions at x/s=0,5. For 10 0, 20 0 and 30 0 roofs slope, at 90 0 wind direction and at z/d=0.16, 0.33, 0.5, 0.66 suction pressure coefficients are observed smaller than other wind directions. For 10 0, 20 0 and 30 0 roofs slope at 60 0 and 90 0 wind directions maximum suction pressure coefficients have been obtained at z/d=0,83. For 30 0 roof slope at 0 0, 30 0 and 60 0 wind directions, positive pressure coefficients have been obtained between x/s=0-0,4. CONCLUSIONS - II
