A wind pressure loading cycle has been developed that aims to simulate the fluctuating wind loads experienced by wall cladding during the passage of a hurricane. Hour long wind pressure records from the Texas Tech University (TTU) Wind Engineering Research Field Laboratory (WERFL) have been used to derive the loading cycle.
