Wind Flow Simulation of Scale Model of TTU Test Building
A study of approach wind flow simulation of the low-rise building was performed in a boundary layer wind tunnel at Shantou University. Three kinds of experimental configuration are employed to simulate the suburban terrain. The characteristics of three types of simulated flow are presented. The wind tunnel testing of low-rise building, 1 : 30 geometrical scale model of the Texas Tech University test building was performed in the simulated flow. The model and full-scale pressure coefficients are presented for high-turbulence boundary layer flow. The comparison of the scale model and full-scale model building point pressure exhibits a good agreement for most of the pressure taps.
