  • A light frame wood building was constructed in New Brunswick, Canada and equipped with pressure and load monitoring instrumentation. A 1:200 scale model of this building was tested in a boundary layer wind tunnel located at Concordia University. The findings of the two individual studies, in the form of pressure and force coefficients, compared well with each other. Small discrepancies were attributed to the wind direction fluctuations of the full-scale records.
