Wind pressure provisions for gable roofs of intermediate roof slope
Theodore Stathopoulos, Kai Wang and Haqing Wu(Canada)

 
Abstract
    The paper addresses the suitability of wind pressure coefficients specified in contemporaryrndesign standards and codes of practice for gable roofs of intermediate slope (roof angle 10 o -30 o ). In arnrecent research study, a series of low building models with different roof slopes in this intermediate rangernwere tested in a boundary layer wind tunnel under simulated open country terrain conditions. This wasrndifferent from the original study in the 70
