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


, : 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.

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.
