Document Type: Book - Manual of Practice


This manual provides guidelines on wind tunnel model testing of buildings and structures. Included are procedures required to provide representative information on wind effects experienced during particular wind conditions, and methods for using such information to provide statistical predictions of full scale behavior. The manual discusses wind modeling, pedestrian level wind, local and panel wind loads, and overall wind loads. Aeroelastic simulations in various structural types are covered. Instrumentation and quality assurance of wind tunnel data are also reviewed.

Subject Headings: Wind loads | Wind tunnel | Tunnels | Structural models | Load factors | Statistics | Pedestrians | Aeroelasticity
