Abstract:

The damage done by recent hurricanes such as Andrew and Iniki has inspired a number of significant developments in the wind engineering field, from increased use of technology to predict structural loading to the creation of more stringent building codes. Long recognized as the sole source of detailed information on the design of wind-resistant structures, Wind Effects on Structures has now been fully revised to address these important changes - providing engineers with completely up-to-date methods and standards for the construction of wind-resistant structures.

Divided into sections on the atmosphere, wind loads, and their effects on structures, the text now incorporates the latest information on the design of low-rise buildings, revised building code standards, and suspended-span structures, plus new material on an extensive range of technical subjects - including across-wind and torsional effects on tall structures, damping of flexible buildings, and progress in wind tunnel modeling. Combining fundamental concepts with real-world applications, this new edition features an easy-to-use software package that enables fast and accurate calculation of wind loads in line with ASCE Standard 7-95 provisions. Thoroughly updated, revised, and amended, Wind Effects on Structures provides the invaluable guidance designers and engineers need to assure the adequate structural safety and serviceability of virtually any wind-sensitive project.
