Enter the wind pressure at the point and the wind pressure in the free wind at a reference point above ground into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Wind Pressure Coefficient.

## Wind Pressure Coefficient Formula

WPC = WPP / DPFW

Variables:

- WPC is the Wind Pressure Coefficient ()
- WPP is the wind pressure at the point
- DPFW is the wind pressure in free wind at a reference point above ground

To calculate the Wind Pressure Coefficient, divide the wind pressure at the point by the wind pressure in the free wind at a reference point above the ground.

## How to Calculate Wind Pressure Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Wind Pressure Coefficient.

- First, determine the wind pressure at the point.
- Next, determine the wind pressure in the free wind at a reference point above ground.
- Next, gather the formula from above = WPC = WPP / DPFW.
- Finally, calculate the Wind Pressure Coefficient.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

wind pressure at the point = 15

wind pressure in free wind at a reference point above ground = 8
