Structural members: mean fluid forces on members of various cross sections.
Abstract:ESDU 82007 provides mean fluid force coefficients for structural members of various shapes for use particularly in the estimation of wind loading on rolled-steel structural members. The data cover equal and unequal leg angles, channels, H- or I-sections and compound angles over 360 degree range of incidence with allowance for yaw angles between 0 degrees and 90 degrees, for finite aspect ratio and shear flows. The effects of Reynolds number, turbulence, interference between nearby members and hysteresis in local flow patterns are discussed.
