The authors recently reported the detailed experimental results on that the discharge coefficient of the openings exposed to the wind driven airflow clearly changes depending upon the windangle and consequent conditions. A full-scale building model in a wind tunnel has been used for theexperiment. In this paper, the mechanism of the change is discussed more deeply, and the predictionmethods of the discharge coefficient are tested by the new experimental results for different conditions of opening size and location.
