Dutch gable?...Get out the wind tunnel.  I'm building one in my back yard right now.  I'm just not sure how to wind tunnel test my wind tunnel.

I?m muddling my way through the ASCE 7-05 wind provisions and I?m not quite sure how to handle a dutch gable, specifically when determining the external pressure coefficient.  Would you just consider it a hip roof when determining pressures parallel to the ridge?  Or can it be idealized as a gable?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
