abstract

  • The NSERC Collaborative Research and Development Project "Load Paths in Wood Buildings " entails the monitoring and collection of data from three light-frame wood buildings to assess the application of environmental loads and their actual transferring through the building's elements to its foundation. The paper describes a pilot study on an existing industrial single-storey, light-frame shed located in Sainte-Foy, Quebec and its corresponding model tested in the wind tunnel of Concordia University. Details of the field and wind tunnel measurements and comparisons of the wind pressure data obtained are presented and discussed in this paper. Copyright © 2005 ITAM.
