Abstract

Internal pressure in a building depends on the size and location of openings, porosity, building volume and flexibility. The combination of internal and external pressures generate net wind loads on structural elements based on the correlation of the internal and external pressures. The correlation of internal and external pressures depends on the location of cladding elements and openings in the envelope with respect to the wind direction. The correlations of pressures on the roof and wall structural elements obtained from 1:200 scale model building study showed that external and internal pressures near the dominant opening are well correlated and different correlations of external and internal pressures were identified on the building wall and roof claddings.
