Abstract

Flow visualization and flow measurement on the roof of the Texas Tech Building are performed in this study. It mainly explores visualization techniques applied to full scale and discusses the results of flow measurements within the separation bubble. The shape of the separation bubble along one axis of the building has been characterized by an intermittency factor. Preliminary observations of the dynamics of the separation bubble are made based upon visualization records.
