Wind pressure measurements corresponding to the various configurations of a detached houseshould be conducted by wind tunnel tests using a comparatively large geometric scale model because a building of extremely small size is targeted. The validity of these wind tunnel experiments was demonstrated by the standardizing the wind pressure properties of a miniature model based on the continuousness of the wind pressure distributions for each model of three different sizes measured in the boundary layer simulated at the geometric scale of 1/250, and verifying this simulation at the geometric scale of 1/83 in addition to the wind pressure properties.
