Wind Effects on Multi-Layer Cladding Systems: Approaches to Obtain Design Wind Loads [N33]

This session will highlight the use of wind tunnels for research and design of steel structures. Studies conducted at the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory at the University of Western Ontario have influenced codes and design standards throughout North America and beyond. Also located in Southern Western Ontario, RWDI Inc. has been involved in the wind modeling, analysis and design of some of the most iconic high-rise steel structures in the world. The presenters will describe the wind tunnel testing process, modeling, results, development of design rules, interaction with the Structural Engineer of Record and provide examples of high-rise steel structures.
