AbstractThis paper analyses wind loads of an irregularly shaped skyscraper in Warsaw. The aim of this study was to compare the results of two methods: analysis conducted according to the Eurocode 1 Standard and wind tunnel testing. The wind pressure distribution on façades and net force values were analysed. In the Eurocode-based analysis, the role played by the form of the building is treated in general terms and the aerodynamic interference with surrounding buildings is not taken into account. The results are characterized by a high design factor of safety. The results of wind tunnel experiments are much more accurate, more reliable, and could be the basis for bassuming lower wind loads.
