Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center construction stage
Definition of the aerodynamic forces acting on the roof and the scaffolding during the construction stage. Scaffolding modeling is not possible in wind tunnel tests due to small scale and Reynolds effects. The numerical model has been validated against the experimental model with no scaffolding; in a following analysis the scaffolding has been modeled and the effect accurately considered.
