Nuova sede unica del comune di Bologna
Analyse the aerodynamic behaviour of the main roof of the structure and define the wind loads on the facades of the buildings composing the full project. A static model of the new building was instrumented by means of force dynamometric balances to measure to global wind loads on the roof pillars and by means of several pressure taps to define the pressure distribution on the buildings facades. Tests on a 1:1 sectional model of the roof were also done.
