The effect of wind on building ventilation is determined by pressure coefficients that depend on many factors such as building geometry, wind direction, mean and turbulent atmospheric boundary layer velocity profiles, and thefactor to be considered here: shelter by upwind obstacles. Pressure coefficients on the exterior of building are defined by normalising the pressure difference between that measured on the surface and a reference pressure by an appropriate stagnation (or velocity) pressure. Describes the various sources of pressure coefficients, the factors that affect sheltered building pressure coefficients.
