Descripción
The design of the new control tower of Fujairah International Airport is characterized by the geometry of the tower, inspired by the profile of a falcon and the curved surfaces of the roof of the auxiliary building. It is not possible to assimilate this peculiar geometry to the prototypical ones found in the application codes for wind action determination. In this article the process to carry out a wind tunnel testing campaign on a scale model of this building. The testing model has been constructed combining different techniques of carpentry, modelling, CNC milling and stereo-lithography (3D printing) and it was instrumented with 588 pressure taps. The effect on the aerodynamic loads of the buildings located around the tower has been studied. The results show that the distribution of pressures on the control tower and the auxiliary building are significantly modified depending on the configuration of the surrounding buildings.
