Present paper describes details of the experimental study carried out on the models of industrial building with north-light roof in order to generate the information about wind pressure distribution on it. The models are tested in a closed circuit boundary layer wind tunnel to measure values of wind pressures on roof surface. Four cases namely one, two, three and four spans are considered. The side of Perspex sheet model in case of multi-span study places plywood models. Wind is made to hit the models at 13 wind incidence angles from 0° to 180° at an interval of 15°. Values of mean wind pressure coefficients are evaluated from the measured values of wind pressures and contours are plotted.
