Aim of this paper is to investigate wind pressure distribution on low-rise industrial building based on the results from atmospheric boundary layer wind tunnel experiments. Building model is a hanger with a tilted roof with an inclination of 5°. Values of mean and fluctuating pressure coefficients measured on the surface of the roof and side walls of the model are discussed in the paper. Five wind approaching angles are considered: 0°, 15°, 30°, 45° and 90°. The investigation can offer some basic understanding of wind behaviour and effects on low-rise industrial buildings regarding different wind angles.
