Abstract

Building aerodynamics is one of the major component in determination of wind effects on buildings. Most of the aerodynamic effects are obtained through measurements in wind tunnels. A limited number of tests are performed on a fullscale level because of difficulty in conducting tests and the high cost. This paper summarizes type of measurements, instrumentation and data for full-scale measurements. The actual presentation with typical photographs and data will be placed on the web site following the conference.
