AbstractDevelopment of new building materials and advances in architectural concepts have led to light weight and more unconventional buildings. Consequently, unexpected wind forces may act on these structures. Experimental results from wind tunnel studies are considered as one reliable source for the wind loading information. An extensive literature survey has been conducted; this paper reviews some of the selected studies to show the research transitions in wind engineering studies of tall buildings. Ten different stages and an established pattern have been identified in wind engineering studies of tall buildings.
