Abstract: Abstract: Based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and the finite element dynamic timehistory analysis method, the timehistory speed of fluctuating wind was simulated by using the numerical method which was used as inlet boundary condition of numerical wind tunnel. Then, nonsteadystate analysis on a largespan arched structure was made by using the FLUENT software to get the timehistory wind loads. Meanwhile, the windinduced vibration response was analyzed using the ANSYS software. After that, equivalent static wind loads (ESWL) based on timehistory response were obtained and the definition of multiobjective ESWL combination factors was proposed. Finally, the multiobjective ESWL of the open largespan arched structure were obtained with their accuracy verified. The study shows that the static response values under ESWL and extreme response values in dynamic analysis are in good agreement.
