Climatological survey and model study: Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Pt. 2, Wind-tunnel studies
Wind patterns over a 1: 384 scale model of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum were obtained by wind-tunnel study of the proposed complex. Motion pictures of direction indicating flags and measurements of wind speed were made for three wind directions (WNW, W and WSW), for three tree plans and for two different upper-stand arrangements at a wind speed of 30 fps. Pressure distributions around the outer wall of the circular arena structure were measured for wind speeds of 3 and 55 fps. Wind conditions over the playing field of the stadium are generally such that wind speeds are less than 60 percent ...
