Determination of Pressure Coefficients to Wind Loading Code

Determining the pressure coefficients on the surfaces of a structure using the wind loading code AS1170.2 is not an easy task, as the code has very little coverage of real world buildings, and thus is a relatively deficient code, and little wind loading research is being done to fill in the gaps. So the following […]
