Wind Load on Complex-Shape Building
Wind load on complex-shape building, the wind tunnel test and numerical simulation were carried out. The two technologies supplement each other and their results meet well. There are mainly positive pressures on the windward surface, negative pressures on the roof, the leeward surface and the side. Especially, negative pressure is higher in the leeward region of the building corner. Its effect induced by the shape of the complex-shape building is remarkable.
