Wind loads on rectangular signboards and hoardings
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-16, 19:59 authored by Letchford, CW
Drag or normal force coefficients on a range of rectangular signboards or hoardings with varying aspect ratios, clearance ratios and porosity's are presented for a range of wind directions and compared with various design data. Whereas, there is reasonably good agreement for data for walls on ground, significant discrepancies exist in normal force coefficients for cases as the panel becomes elevated in the boundary layer. Discrepancies in codification have been highlighted and revised loading data recommended.
