Theme paper: Low-rise structures--Wind loading and flow field

Kishor C. Mehta

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This session containing sixteen papers deals with research concerning wind loads on and ventilation in low-rise buildings. The two areas relate to different types of wind; wind loads area of concern during strong winds while the ventilation of buildings is of interest during periods of no winds or low prevailing winds. A majority of the papers deal with experiments in wind tunnels though a few papers discribe field observations and computational methods. The theme paper surveys the papers in the session and challenges the researchers to be cognizant of the realities of wind in nature.
