#### Factors

User input values:
q: 1kPa
Importance Factor, ULS: Iw = 1.0
(Note: No load factors are applied to the results below.)
Ct = 1

#### External Wind Pressures

p = Iw*q*Ce*Ct*Cg*Cp

H/D = 1
Ce = Ce(Z)
Cp = 0.8

#### On Leeward Face

Ce(H/2) = Ce = (h/10)0.2 (but not less than 0.9) = 0.9
Cp = -0.5
p = Iw*q*Ce(H)*Ct*Cg*Cp = -0.9 kPa

#### On Roof

Ce(H) = Ce = (h/10)0.2 (but not less than 0.9) = 0.9
Cp = -1
p = Iw*q*Ce(H)*Ct*Cg*Cp = -1.8 kPa

#### On Side Walls

Ce(H) = Ce = (h/10)0.2 (but not less than 0.9) = 0.9
Cp = -0.7
p = Iw*q*Ce(H)*Ct*Cg*Cp = -1.26 kPa

#### Internal Wind Pressure

Cgi = 2.0
Cpi = 0.3 to -0.45
Reference height (max H/2 or 6m)= 6 m
Cei = (hi/10)0.2 (but not less than 0.9) = 0.9
pi = Iw*q*Cei*Ct*Cgi*Cpi
pi = 0.54kPa to -0.81kPa
