STUDY OF THE GUSTINESS OF HIGH WINDS TO CREATE PRINCIPLES FOR ESTABLISHING LOADS ON STRUCTURES SENSITIVE TO WIND VIBRATION

UNTERSUCHUNG DER BOEIGKEIT VON STARKWINDEN ZUR SCHAFFUNG VON GRUNDLAGEN FUER LASTFESTLEGUNG WINDSCHWINGUNGSEMPFINDLICHER BAUWERKE UND BAUTEILE

TO DESIGN FOR WIND LOADS ON STRUCTURES THE ENGINEER NEEDS BASIC METEOROLOGICAL DATA WITH WHICH HE CAN ESTIMATE THE BEARING CAPACITY AND THE OPERATIONAL SAFETY OF STRUCTURES. THE GUSTING SPEEDS OF HIGH WINDS ARE BEING MEASURED ON A 50 M HIGH MAST, AND ARE BEING EVALUATED IN RELATION TO HEIGHT ABOVE GROUND LEVEL.
