Videos of flow separation and lift forces on houses

Here are animated GIFs for the “Flow separation and lift forces on houses” demonstration.

The first shows the case of the door being on the downwind side of the building, therefore, no internal pressurization (full video here).


The second shows the  door on the upwind side of the house such that the building is pressurized (full video here).
