In present paper we introduce the main advantages of modeling atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) properties for determination of mean and peak wind loads on structures. Experimental tests were carried out using wind tunnel with uniform velocity profile and new Landscape Wind tunnel (LWT) of Krylov State Research Centre. General characteristics of simulated boundary layer (such as mean velocity profile and turbulence intensity profile) are presented. For wind loads measurements model of Silsoe cube in a scale of 1:15 was used. Comparison of the data obtained at both test rigs with data published in early studies is performed. New data about aerodynamic forces acting on the model in range of angles of oncoming flow are presented. Algorithm for determination of peak wind loads is discussed.
