In this article, the main aspects of determination of wind loads on buildings and constructions, and in particular, the wind action are considered. The character and nature of the wind load and calculation methods have been investigated. The article analyzes several ways of determination of wind effect. Calculation in accordance with prevailing regulations, wind tunnel tests and mathematical modeling of wind action are used in practical field. Therefore, the possibility of computational simulation of such loads and verifying of received results should be marked as an actual issue. The task of further develop of the method of wind effect calculation using computer simulation is formulated.
