A project is in progress at Texas Tech University to acquire wind data and building surface pressure data in the field. The objective of this project is to obtain a reliable data base for external pressures on building surfaces. The anticipated wind-induced pressures are in the range of ± 10 psf. However, pressures as high as ± 20 psf may occur in a strong windstorm. This paper describes the assembly of the pressure measuring system and the verification of its performance.
