|Title:||Interference effects on wind pressures on low-rise and high-rise square structures in side-by-side arrangement|
Gowda, B H Lakshmana
|Abstract:||In this paper, the effects of interference on three-dimensional bluff bodies with square cross-section placed in side-by-side arrangement for a low-rise body and a high-rise body have been investigated experimentally. The extent of interference effects are brought out by varying the spacing between the bodies. The pressure distributions on the surfaces of the bodies are measured to bring out the severity of interference due to another body adjacent to it. The bodies are exposed to an air stream with a velocity profile satisfying the 1/7<sup>th</sup> power law. It is seen that the pressure distribution on rear side and interference side is greatly affected for low-rise body when interfered by a high-rise body in close proximity.|
