An attempt to prevent strong winds from ripping cladding off buildings is discussed. A procedure for testing the resistance of sheeting to wind forces, developed by the South African Railways and applied to various large buildings, is descriptionbed. The assessment of test loads, used to simulate the wind forces, is also dealt with.
