Wind loads on free-standing walls in turbulent boundary layers

Pressure measurements on walls immersed in turbulent boundary layer flow from two different wind tunnel facilities are presented and compared. A variety of wall configurations, wind directions and shielding arrangements were studied. Some of this data has been incorporated into codes of practice for the design of free-standing walls. Differences in the most fundamental case, that of a wall completely spanning the wind tunnel, are attributed to differences between the two wind tunnel flow simulations over the height of the wall. © 1994.
