Aerodynamic Databese of High-rise Buildings
Introduction
An aerodynamic database has been constructed by the Tokyo Polytechnic University as one part of the Wind Effects on Buildings and Urban Environment,the 21st Century Center of Excellence Program,funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology,Japan. Present work is the high-rise building part of the aerodynamic database. Its objective is to provide structural design engineers with wind tunnel test data of wind loads on high-rise buildings.22 models of high-rise buildings were tested. Contours of statistical values of local wind pressure coefficients, graphs of statistical values of area averaged wind pressure coefficients on the wall surfaces and time series data of point wind pressure coefficients for 394 test cases are shown on this web site. These data can be used to calculate local wind pressures,area averaged wind pressure coefficie on wall surfaces, and even wind induced dynamic responses of high-rise buildings.
The aerodynamic database of high-rise buildings can be queried from the lower part of this webpage.
