oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Comparative wind tunnel studies on model buildings : pressure measurements

Volume 31, Issue 8
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The paper presents a comparison of pressure measurements obtained in wind tunnel studies at the Division of Building Technology and several other wind tunnel laboratories for two model buildings, namely the Commonwealth Advisory Aeronautical Research Council (CAARC) tall building model and the Aylesbury low-rise building. The investigations reported show that the pressure measurements obtained at the DBT tor the two standard building models compare favourably with those obtained at other wind tunnel laboratories. The paper also demonstrates the level of consistency that can be obtained by different wind tunnel laboratories, provided that the boundary layer profile is correctly simulated and satisfactory laboratory techniques are employed.
