Abstract : This Test Operations Procedure (TOP) provides guidance on how to perform wind testing. These procedures provide a general basis for testing and should be tailored to the specific test requirements and wind testing facility capabilities. When testing large structures, such as towers, the structural analysis team should be an integral part of the test team for specifying data requirements and supporting structural model validation and verification.
