Wind engineering study of Johns-Manville world headquarters
Model tests of the Ken Caryl Ranch area were conducted in the Colorado State University environmental wind tunnel to determine: 1) general wind distribution, 2) snowdrift location, 3) distribution of gas concentration resulting from the automobile exhaust released in the ground level parking area, 4) local gust intensities, and 5) induced wind pressures on the Johns-Manville World Headquarters. The 1:400 scale model included the basic structure and all the significant local terrain features. Wind effects for eight significant wind directions at 45 degree intervals starting from north were examined ...
