Sidewall wind suction on an irregular building (in plan view)

Sidewall wind suction on an irregular building (in plan view)

Sidewall wind suction on an irregular building (in plan view)

(OP)
Hello,
Refer to the attached image. I am wondering what would be the sidewall wind pressure coefficient for this case where the angle between windward and side walls is 64 degrees and not 90 degrees. Can I use -0.7 for this case?
Regards,
Su

RE: Sidewall wind suction on an irregular building (in plan view)

You have to check all wind directions that would produce the greatest loading. There are wind directions that would be at 90 degrees to the angled walls you show.
