The wind flow around the elliptical object was investigated experimentally in the BLWT wind tunnel in Bratislava and subsequently solved by computer wind flow simulation. On a high-rise building model, the external wind pressure coefficients were evaluated for different wind directions and then compared with the numerical CFD simulation in ANSYS, where different models of turbulence and mesh types were used. The aim of the article was to evaluate and compare the obtained values and after analysing the results to choose the most suitable model of turbulence and mesh types, which showed the smallest deviations from the experimental values.
