This paper describes the work of the Working Group on wind pressure coefficients on low-rise structures, one of the groups set up by the International Association of Wind Engineering in 1999. General aspects of wind loading on low-rise structures are summarized. The definition, derivation and codification of loading coefficients is described. Comparisons of pressure coefficients on low rise structures are made between a selection of wind loading standards. Recommendations for consistency and for the harmonization of these coefficients are given.
