Abstract:

As part of an investigation into the nature of wind loading on tall buildings in an urban environment, the Building Research Station took measurements of the surface pressure on the 118 m tall Vickers Tower at Millbank. The variation of pressure with height up the building face was examined and comparisons are made with the earlier work on Royex House. The measured loadings are compared with the design recommendations in BRS Digest 119. Author
