INFLUENCE OF WIND STRUCTURE AND ASPECT RATIO OF CIRCULAR CYLINDERS ON MEAN WIND PRESSURE COEFFICIENT
The paper presents analyses of the mean wind pressure coefficient distribution on the surfaces of circular cylinders. The experiment was performed in a boundary layer wind tunnel in the Wind Engineering Laboratory in Cracow, Poland. Three models were examined in the wind tunnel. The influence of the aspect ratio and wind parameters (mean wind speed profile, turbulence intensity profile, power spectral density functions) on the mean wind pressure coefficient distribution and its standard deviation was considered during the tests.
Keywords:wind tunnel, mean wind pressure coefficient, circular cylinder, wind structure, aspect ratio
