Determination of load due to wind

In order to calculate a structure and optimize it, it is essential to know the loads to which it is subjected. In the case of solar panels, the load is due to the wind.
Depending on the information you want to obtain and the phase in which the project is located, a more or less complex simulation can be carreed out. But with a two-dimensional simulaltion, we can obtain information of great interest, such as the coefficients of pressure, lift, moment, drag or shelter.

Loads due to wind

This project was carried out by applying two-dimensional fluid dynamic simulation It is a simple simulation but from which we can obtain information of great importance from the design and calculation of the structure.
This is a problem with a highly oscillating phenomenology. It is therefore intersting to also analyze the frequencies that dominate the problema. This analysis can help in the design of support systems to prevent resonances and thus avoid catastrophic damage that could not otherwise be detected.
