The effects of cross wind on the flow field in natural-draft dry-coding towers are studied experimentally in a wind tunnel using similarity principles. Particular attention is focused on the flow fields inside the tower. The study ill ustrates the influence of wind on the cooling tower performance and proposes a number of techniques for improving tower performance with a cross-wind
