wool:NZ (Wind Code AS/NZS 1170.2 2011)

wool:NZ (The Wind Tool) is the pocket calculator which determines building response as per the New Zealand national wind-loading code AS/NZS 1170.2 2011.The perfect tool to aid engineering professionals, students and teachers in the calculation and verification of the design of mid-rise and tall-buildings in New Zealand.wool:New Zealand is possibly the best thing since the invention of the Boundary Layer Wind-Tunnel+ Design your own building and calculate along-wind and cross-wind responses for four wind directions:* Base Overturning Moments* Base Shear Forces* Torsion* Maximum Tip Deflection* Maximum Tip Acceleration+ Calculate and plot along-wind and cross-wind responses over the height of the building:* Point Loads* Shear Forces* Deflection* Torsion+ Easy to use interface with minimal inputs required from the user:* Basic building dimensions (HxLxD)* Frequencies of vibration, assumed structural damping and mode shape exponents (pre-sets as defined by AS/NZS 1170.2 commentary) * Return period, upstream terrain category and regional wind speed (with hi-res map of various wind regions of New Zealand)+ Advanced controls available for the experienced engineer:* Topographic Multiplier (Mt)* Shielding Multiplier (Ms)* Directional Multiplier (Md)* Action Combination Factor (Kc)* Eccentricity creating torsion* Building density+ Outputs important parameters used in the calculation of building response for user reference+ Save projects and edit later+ SI Units+ Help Buttons for more information on the definition of inputs
