## Abstract

In this research article an attempt has been made to analyse the design wind pressure on the rectangular buildings using Python programming. For this purpose, design wind pressure is calculated and compared using IS 875 (Part 3) 1987 and the revised code IS 875 (Part 3) 2015. The concept have been applied to three different building heights i.e. 20, 40, and 60 m having same plan 1010 m2. It has been observed that the impact of wind pressure on the building rises with the building height along with the fact that the design wind pressures obtained from revised code show more pressures in comparison to the old one. Therefore, the design based on the revised code will be more close to the reality as it incorporates risk factor, directionality factor, area averaging factor, and combination factors. Also, the module developed for wind loads can be readily used by the researchers/designers for the better understanding of programming and the design loads.
