I am interested in wind loading on open structures. I am talking about the structure only not any equipment. I apply wind load to the first member in each plane. For every member behind the first member (assuming first member is > member behind)I assume shielded so apply no wind load to those members. I was just told that I cannot assume front member shields the wind. Why can't u assume shielding from first member?
