A Very silly abaqus question... applying a wind load

Dear All,

Sorry to ask such a silly question but I am quite new to Abaqus... I am trying to model a tower exposed to wind. I know how the wind pressure varies according to height, but what I dont know is how to model it in abaqus... Also, if i apply a pressure load, then the load will act normally at all points on the surface, right? But in actuality wind doesnt act that way... Could anyone help me out on this one?


Thanks and Regards,


Check out abaqus analysis manual -> prescribed conditions -> loading ->surface loading ->general traction load.

 and in keyword manual:

*Dload or *Dsload -> looad type TRAVEC


The world started with 0, is progressing with 0, but doesn't want 0.
