Subject: Wind load on open box
Have an existing 20'x20'x16'height box with the top open. The box
the top of a roof.
Question: Does the second (leeward wall) pick up full wind pressure
first wall? Any good references for how much the second wall will
In the past I have always been conservative and used full pressures
What if the bax were smaller the first wall would shield the second
you would think pressures would be less.
