MATLAB-based database-assisted design software for rigid, gable-roofed buildings.

NIST Aerodynamic Database

A public repository of aerodynamic data from boundary layer wind tunnel tests on scale building models. The initial posting of the database contains 95 data sets contributed by The Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory at The University of Western Ontario (UWO) for gable-roofed building models with various dimensions and terrain conditions.


A MATLAB-based software tool for the extraction of wind and thunderstorm data from ASCII-format Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) data files, for use in extreme value analysis.
