Cladding and structural wind loads can be significantly affected by a number of parameters, including the building geometry and surrounding buildings. With the increasing cost of construction materials and a move towards reducing the construction industry’s carbon footprint, there is an increasing requirement for a building’s structural and cladding system to be as efficient as possible. Therefore, having an accurate understanding of the wind loads acting on a building is becoming more critical than ever in the design of tall buildings.
This event will discuss the main methodologies for predicting wind loads using physical wind tunnel testing.
