can RANS flow software be used to CFD analysis for tensile fabric
structures ? simulate wind loads ? positive and negative pressure areas on
the fabric ?
[Edit: Based on an email exchange]
[Edit November, 7, 2011: Caedium RANS Flow can now deal with zero thickness (or double sided) walls]
If you can create/provide tent geometry with thickness and you are not
looking for fluid-structure interaction (fluid and structure are coupled
as in real fabric structures) then yes we can model such fabric
structures with Caedium RANS Flow.
