Abstract:
The wind tunnel tests were carried out on rigid models of tall buildings with square plan shape to study the effects of interference on wind loads on tall buildings. This paper presents the results of the same. Effects of various geometric and flow parameters on total force and moments are reported, which are deduced from the wind pressure values obtained on isolated instrumented buildings in the vicinity.
