Research output: Book/ReportOther report


Field measurements of wind velocity and direction carried out at the University of Minnesota Health Science Complex from July 1 to November 30, 1994, are reported. Two anemometers and one wind direction vane were used in the measurements, One anemometer was located outside the Unit B/C door, 4.3 m above the sidewalk and 0.5 m out from the wall. The other anemometer and a wind direction vane were installed atop the north-west corner of the Unit A building to provide information on the wind conditions above the buildings. Conditional sampling using the ground level anemometer to provide minimum threshold wind speeds was used to identify critical wind directions.
