The Atlantic Palace—Part II The Application of Wind Tunnel/Force Balance Techniquesby David Surry, Univ of Western Ontario, London, Ont, Canada,
Gary R. Lythe, Univ of Western Ontario, London, Ont, Canada,
Abstract: A relatively new approach for determining overall wind-induced loads on a structure is described. This force balance technique is economical and flexible, and able to provide predictions of loads and responses for varying building dynamic properties without the need for repeated testing. The Atlantic Palace Building is used as an example to show the power of the technique.
