A systematic series of tests measuring probable distribution of wind pressure on buildings over a practically useful range of building proportions was undertaken using a three dimensional tunnel on a wide assortment of simply gabled block type structures. These tests were then extended to thinwalls, hangar type structures, and simple building groups. The possible effects on building codes and construction techniques are discussed.
