>Consider a solid wall, with perpendicular wind. ASCE 7 tells us how to
calculate wind pressures. So far, so good ....

A methodology and data for multiple shielding of walls and lattices in any
combination is given in:
N J Cook. "The designer's guide to wind loading of building structures,
Part 2." Butterworth Scientific, 1990. ISBN 0-408---871-7.

A codified version of the method is given in Appendix A of N J Cook "Wind
loading - a practical guide to BS6399-2", Thomas Telford, 1999.

Hope this helps.
