Abstract

In the paper the aerodynamic forces acting on a part of a water slide or other object with curved, tubular shape, depending on the section of a torus and value of the wind velocity, were obtained. This was done by means of finite element method (FEM) and finite volume method (FVM) computer simulations, using modules: computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) and taking into account the Eurocode EN 1991-1-4.
