Abstract: For three-dimensional prisms of finite length in natural wind environments, the influx of fluid from the top end of the prism can cause considerable alterations to the vortex-shedding process near the free end, and hence variation of the loadings over the top end of the prism. It is thus desirable to know the extent of the wind load variations at the free end of a prism due to changes in the incident turbulence characteristics. This paper is concerned with the effects of turbulence intensities on the surface pressures of the prisms. Finite length triangular prisms are now being used as the main structural members of offshore oil rigs, telecommunication towers, etc.
