Abstract Full-scale mean wind loads on panels within free standing walls are compared with previous and new wind tunnel model studies. The high loads adjacent to free ends are evident in all studies. Various methods to reduce this end-panel loading were tried in the wind tunnel to examine their effectiveness. It was observed that short return walls and wall porosity did not significantly reduce the loading as previously suggested. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
