Wind tunnel modeling and analysis of wind effects on low-rise buildings
Wind tunnel modeling is a robust technique which allows determination of wind effects on buildings and other structures. Due to complexity of flows and induced wind loads, other techniques can not be reliably used in practical analyses of such effects. Information deduced from wind tunnel testing has been successfully employed in development of design guidelines and in direct applications in wind-resistant design of variety of structures, including low-rise buildings. Although wind tunnel modeling of wind loading has been generally accepted as a viable tool, over the years a number of questions ...
