The wind tunnel testing of TEMPSC models was done in response to the Offshore Evacuation Systems project. Testing was done in order to establish the model drag coefficients so that the wind loads could be scaled appropriately for each model and accurate wind speeds could be used in the offshore engineering basin for future testing. Detailed in the report are and method used in both the test set-up and analysis of the results. Also included are possible reasons for any discrepancies of the results encountered throughout testing.
