New Plugin for Wind Tunnel Simulations Released: Tdyn Wind Tunnel

This plugin combines the 3D design capabilities of Rhinoceros with the smooth user experience and computational power of Tdyn Wind Tunnel.

The plugin allows you to perform CFD simulations in three simple steps:
  1. Automatic export of geometry created and prepared in Rhino to Tdyn Wind Tunnel.
  2. Definition of wind speed and symmetries.
  3. Launch the simulation and view the results!
This plugin is perfect for anyone who can benefit from aerodynamic analyses, regardless of their expertise in CFD simulations or fluid dynamics knowledge, for example:
  • Structural engineers seek accurate values of the wind loads.
  • Architects and urban designers who are willing to assess wind behavior around urban areas/buildings or enhance comfort inside spaces.
  • Designers (cars, motorbikes, etc.) looking for improved estimations of aerodynamic coefficient.
  • Fluid mechanics teachers whose purpose is to provide more intuitive and specific educational tools and content.
Furthermore, CFD experts will also find in Tdyn Wind Tunnel an extraordinary ally that will drastically reduce the preprocessing, meshing, and post-processing times while minimizing the associated errors.

The first execution of the plugin will check if Tdyn WindTunnel is installed on the PC and will automatically download and install it from the CompassIS Website. In subsequent executions, the user will be required to introduce the passwords needed for the execution of the Tdyn Wind tunnel.

The Rhino plugin is free, and Tdyn WindTunnel currently offers the possibility of evaluating it for free with temporal passwords, which can be obtained from our password generator.
