  • This paper examines the ability of two semi-empirical approaches to estimate wind induced accelerations in tall buildings as compared to results obtained from wind tunnel measurements on scale models. The estimating methods include a code based approach found in The National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) and an alternate semi-empirical approach which incorporates more detailed building and wind properties in the analysis steps. These techniques are applied to 48 buildings tested to date. © 1990.
