Abstract

This paper addresses questions that arose during development and application of the Dutch guideline for wind tunnel testing to determine wind loads on buildings. This guideline (CUR 103) is being used since 2005, and a first revision is foreseen. Within this revision, the relation with Eurocode EN 1991- 1-4 is established. Questions to be resolved concern data acquisition and data analysis choices. This could form the basis for a European standard. During the conference, a discussion on the need for a European guideline is welcomed.
