Definition: a wind simulation test where single or multi-component force is measured on a building or structure model
 DesignSafeWind(undefined) 
Examples: An alternative to measuring pressures on a building model in a wind tunnel is to do a force balance test where forces are measured directly through the base of the model.

Shein, please modify the definition to say "A wind simulation test where single or multi-component load is measured on a building or structural model " please link to the term load and to the term structural model Submitted 15 June 2016
