Abstract

Nowadays, parametric design and various simulation methods are gaining ground in almost every engineering and creative profession. This paper investigates the practical applicability of the combination of these methods, by analysing a specific free-form structure with Grasshopper 3D and OpenFOAM and points out the differences between the results of a CFD simulation and the recommended methods of the Eurocode, highlighting the new perspectives that are opening up in the field of structural design, especially in the examination of wind effects.
