A wind resistant performance test method for mechanically-attached waterproofing systems has been developed using three pressure loading actuators (PLAs). The chamber to which specimen is attached is divided into three rooms. The PLAs generates fluctuating wind pressures in the rooms separately using the time history of wind pressures measured at different points on the building model in a wind tunnel. The test results are consistent with those of full-scale measurements performed on a test building. Furthermore, the dynamic response of the roofing system is simulated by a finite element method. The result of the analysis is consistent with the experimental results.
