Wind Tunnel Studies of Buildings and Structures provides guidelines to assist architects and engineers involved with wind tunnel model testing of buildings and structures. Wind tunnel testing of the final structure and of the structure during construction is desirable to improve the reliability of structural performance and to achieve cost effectiveness. This revised editionĜincludes procedures that can provide representative information on wind effects during certain wind conditions and also methods for using this information to develop statistical predictions of full-scale behavior. New developments are presented in the wind engineering field and wind tunnel studies of the dispersion of pollutants around buildings and in urban environments.
