Solar Tower Fluid Structure Interaction

Menatech Limited recently simulated the Fluid Structure Interaction of a Solar Tower using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics. This innovation-simulation-realisation showcase simulates the (exaggerated) deflection of a solar tower due to excessive wind loading and incorporated the latest techniques in the field.

Material stresses are also easily extracted as well as pressure and velocity of the air flow. The animation of the results are also featured on our YouTube site.
