Wind Loading of Structures

This third edition of a reliable reference takes a broad view to studying wind forces from various types of wind events. Information on major international codes and standards and data from a generous number of extreme wind climates are provided as some of its unique features. Specific topics covered include: the nature of wind storms and wind-induced damage; prediction of design wind speeds and structural safety; strong wind characteristics and turbulence; basic bluff-body aerodynamics; resonant dynamic response and effective static load distributions; internal pressures; simulation of strong winds and wind loads; low-rise buildings; tall buildings; large roofs and sports stadiums; towers, chimneys, and masts; bridges; transmission lines, other structure types; and wind-loading codes and standards. Practicing engineers, academics, and graduate students in structural engineering and related fields will benefit from the comprehensively updated information in this book.
