Field experiments for wind effects on low buildings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The Wind Engineering Research Field Laboratory (WERFL), established in 1987 at Texas University, has permitted measurements of wind speeds and associated wind effects on the one-story test building. This paper describes a variety of experiments and measurements conducted at the WERFL. Data obtained in the field is analyzed and published in the open literature. An outgrowth of some of the field measured data is development of analytical models. An overview of these items and other research studies to be conducted at the WERFL are presented here.
