Subject: Wind Load - Gas Station Overhead

Just curious if someone has experience or ideas as to how someone would
come
up with wind loads for those overhead structures typically seen at gas
stations. Basically an open structure with column support(s). Seems like

this would behave like an airplane wing and wouldn't fall under signs
nor
buildings specifically. Are engineers for these going to wind tunnels
all of
the time?
