Zum Start der Entwicklung unseres Entwurfswerkzeuges werden wir die Ergebnisse des Workshops „Speculative Patterns“ aus dem Entwurfsprojekt 51,9°N mit der Software Ecotect und WinAir testen. Die numerische Strömungsmechanik (englisch: computational fluid dynamics, CFD) ist eine Methode der Strömungsmechanik, die strömungsmechanische Probleme approximativ mit numerischen Methoden löst. Die numerische Strömungsmechanik bietet eine kostengünstige Alternative zu Windkanal-Versuchen, die oft als Werkzeug zum Design von Flugzeugen verwendet wird. Aufgabe: Jede der Gruppen des Entwursprojektes hat die Aufgabe bekommen, ein digitales Modell Ihrer Studie zu erstellen. Erstellen Sie anhand dieser Modelle eine CFD-Analyse in Ecotect (gem. Anleitung). Modus: Gruppenarbeit (min 2er Gruppen, max 3er Gruppen) Abgabe: Erstellen Sie 6 Schnitte durch die Simulation Ihres Modells und erstellen Screenshots gem. Abbildung. Schicken Sie diese Screenshots bis Dienstag, 12. April, 12.00 Uhr als gezipptes Archiv an die E-mail-Adresse: teamdigital@fh-muenster.de.
