In this study a tall G+8 storied curved in plan (comprising an external and internal curved facade) has been analysed for wind acting in specified directions using STAAD pro v8i.For the curved profile, the wind load component has been calculated for each radial beam line. The combination of static load and wind load are taken into consideration. In the first case, the wind has been assumed to act towards the centre of the arc of the circle and in the second, away from the centre. The post processing reverberation in terms of bending moments, shear forces and support reactions has been studied in relation to the wind directions. Due to the effect of wind load on the structure, the storey-sage variation of the result with respect to different parameters are to be compared. The stiffness of the structure as a whole is expected to vary with the changed direction of the wind. The result would result in a parametric study of the effect of wind direction on curved profile. The orientation of the curved structure with respect to the direction of wind load has been studied.
