Presents a general picture of the consequence of wind on high buildings. States that the air velocity in the lower 250-600m layer of the atmosphere is strongly affected by the shape of the earth's contours, and discusses the effect and size of eddies. Gives the range of wind pressure variations between windward side, leeward side and at corners and edges and outlines problems that can result in ventilating, from draught and other wind hindrance aspects. Brief tips are given to minimize serious mishaps from the result of wind near high rise buildings.
