A program of large- and full-scale measurements, both in large-scale experimental facilities and in the field is under way to better understand the interaction of strong winds with non-structural building components like roofing, soffit, cladding, and openings. A new generation of wireless sensors network (WSN) is enabling these measurements. The better characterization of the component pressures due to wind speed shall lead to:

more accurate and realistic design models for building components;
improved load specifications, like ASCE 7; and,
safer and more economical structures, and in general to more resilient and sustainable communities.
The testing program at the Wall of Wind generated very large datasets, which were hosted, curated, and published in DesignSafe. A network of up to 30 sensors, including 1 anemometer, can deploy and gather pressure, temperature, and humidity data, at a rate of up to 100 sample per minute per sensor, for 50 hours or more. We shall present the entire workflow facilitated by DesignSafe, from inception of the tests to publication of the data, including a novel set of Jupyter notebooks, to query, process, visualize, analyze, and correlate data from either laboratory or field events databases. These notebooks address the challenge of dealing with large datasets with different types and format of data. The notebooks and the data are published in DesignSafe. Potential users will be able to emulate our workflow and re-use these published notebooks for developing their own notebooks for accessing, visualizing, and analyzing similar sets of data.

The presentation will include a summary of the project, a description of the workflow and the associated notebooks, a demonstration of the main features of the notebooks, followed by a short hands-on activity to illustrate potential re-use of the notebooks.
