  60. Further details…“How large should the compartments be? Their size should be based on the pressure ranges they are likely to experience. Since wind pressures are usually more uniform in the centre of a flat facade than at the corners, compartments can be larger in the centre and should be smaller at the corners (a wind tunnel study stressed the importance of compartmenting corners). Garden suggested compartments every 1.2 m (4 ft) at the ends and tops of walls in a 6-m (20-ft) wide perimeter zone, and on 3- to 6-m (10- to 20-ft) centres in both directions over the central portion. “ (M.Z.
