Experimental Study of UTM New Sport Complex
Keywords:UTM stadium model, flow visualisation, smoke wire technique, pressure measurements
Wind loading is generally dominated by the separated wind flow over the roof, which resulted in pressure distribution that varies greatly in both space and time. The objective of this project is to investigate the flow visualisation of UTM new sport complex roof in wind tunnel experiment. The UTM stadium model with the scale 1:40 was used in the wind tunnel test experiment. Two different methods were employed in this research which is flow visualisation test by using smoke generator and pressure measurements on the top surface of the roof. For flow visualisation, the images were captured by using digital camera while the pressure measurement data were measured using pressure scanner. The wind tunnel test has been done successfully and the results from both wind tunnel tests were compared for validation purpose.
