Wind Driven Debris

During tropical cyclones, loose objects can become airborne and cause major damage to buildings and structures by impacting windward walls. Further damage can arise from internal pressurisation of the building and water ingress. Research is undertaken by the Cyclone Testing Station engineers to study the flight initiation of potential missiles and how they might damage common building materials such as windows and wall cladding.
