In order to clarify the behavior of a building under strong wind,a boundary layer wind tunnel with an open-circuit configuration is installed in our Wind Engineering Laboratory.
We evaluate the design wind load for a projected building and estimate the wind environment around a high-rise building from wind tunnel experiments on scale down models.
Measurement of the wind environment
around a high-rise building
|Type||Euiffel type boundary layer wind tunnel of open circuit type|
|Cross section of working section||1.8m (width)*1.2 to 1.4m (variable height)|
|Length of working section||11.6m|
|Wind velocity range||0 m/s to 25 m/s (continuously variable)|
