A system designed for making field measurements of wind action on engineering structures is described. The system is composed of sonic anemometers, differential pressure sensors, a barometer, and a thermohygrometer. The focus of this study is to determine the indications of sonic anemometers; to accomplish this goal, wind tunnel tests were performed. The tests did not involve checking the accuracy of the devices themselves, but determining their indications under field measurement conditions where certain unavoidable errors resulting from their installation can appear. The anemometer measurement uncertainty with respect to wind speed and angle was determined. The devices were rotated in a horizontal plane and inclined against and with the mean wind speed direction in a wind tunnel. Different tunnel wind speeds were tested. The results indicate stable device readings at different horizontal plane positions at different wind speeds and a low sensitivity to changes in inclination against the inflow.
