A Wind Tunnel Study on the External Pressure Distribution on a Typical Bangladeshi Rural Home

During the last few years, engineers have increasingly realised the importance of wind loads for all types of structures, especially in wind-disaster prone areas. More information describing the wind loads on house roofs is needed so that roofs can be designed against such local damage. The purpose of this study is to determine the external pressure distribution over a typical gabled roof for different wind speeds and direction.
