The effects of eaves geometry, model scale and approach flow conditions on portal frame building wind loads


Eighth international conference on wind engineering, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada, 8-12 July 1991 Summary papers: 2 pp.
The effects of eaves geometry, model scale and approach flow conditions on portal frame building wind loads
Scaled portal frame building models were used in wind tunnels at the University of Surrey and the University of Western Ontario to study the flow conditions around a farm building commonly used for storage, or animal housing. Brief details of the experiments performed in each wind tunnel are given and the results compared.
