Abstract

The current codes and standards (e.g. ASCE 7) predict peak wind pressures on low-rise buildings largely based on wind tunnel data but only validated by few available full-scale results. Recent full-scale measurements of the wind pressures on the TTU building surfaces are used to evaluate one set of the pressure coefficients for main wind force resisting system (MWFRS) in ASCE 7. The MWFRS design pressure coefficients when multiplied by the gust effect factor do not envelop the pressure coefficients measured in full scale for all angles of attack.
