AbstractWind pressure measurements made over a 4-year period on a 34- story building in downtown Montreal were used to obtain data for checking and improving wind tunnel techniques of modelling flow characteristics of wind and aerodynamic behaviour of buildings. Comparisons with model measurements are made on the basis of mean pressures, rms pressures, power spectra and the correlation between selected pairs of pressures measured at various points on the building. Measurements are now under way on a 600-ft office building using a more sophisticated data acquisition system by means of which it should be possible to acquire the desired information more efficiently and in a shorter period of time.
