However, it is not possible to simplify the coefficients due to the increased complexity of the components and cladding pressure coefficients. To account for these higher wind speeds, the velocity pressure exposure coefficients in Table are multiplied by a topographic factor, K ztdefined in Eq.

Several references provide detailed information and guidance for the determination of wind loads and other types of design data by wind tunnel tests [Refs. For flexible buildings, dynamic awce can increase torsional loading. Additional torsional loading can occur because of eccentricity between the elastic shear center and the center of mass -795 each level of the structure. Significant reductions in wind speeds occur in inland Florida for the new analysis.

In these cases, reference should be made to recognized literature or a wind tunnel study. Equivalent static buffeting wind loads 7-995 structures. C for all building types and all heights.

Basis of design and actions on structures—Part Generally buildings with a MWFRS in each principal direction consisting of one of the following would not be torsionally sensitive: For a storm of a given intensity, Table C takes into consideration both the asve in wind speed as the storm moves from aasce water to over land due to changes in surface roughness and also the change in the gust factor as the storm moves from over water to acse land [Ref.

As discussed in Section 6. This column has the same basis averaging time, height, and exposure as the basic wind speed from Fig. If loose roof aggregate is proposed for the new building, it too should be considered as a debris source because aggregate can be blown off the roof and be propelled into glazing on the leeward side of the building.


C] have shown that the GC p f values of Fig.

Values for the factor were established from references in the literature and collective committee judgment. Several references provide guidance in developing wind load criteria for tornado-resistant design [Refs.

Services for libraries National interlibrary loan International interlibrary loan. The multipliers listed in Fig. Axce latter results have been obtained under correctly simulated boundary-layer flow conditions.

In this case, the pressure coefficient should be separated for the effect of top and bottom pressures, or conservatively, each surface could be designed using the C N value from Fig.

This equation was derived based on the polar moment of inertia and relative stiffnesses of the lateral elements for a building.

A hurricane coast importance factor of 1. The ESDU boundary layer model has also been used to derive the following simplified method of evaluating K z following a transition from one surface roughness to another. Examples of site locations and buildings and structures or portions thereof that require use of recognized literature for documentation pertaining to wind effects, or the use of the wind tunnel procedure of Section 6.

Adjustments of wind speeds should be made at the micrometeorological scale on the basis of wind engineering or meteorological advice and used in accordance with the provisions of Section 6. In addition, the upwind distance to consider has been lengthened from 50 times to times the height of the topographic feature H and from 1 mi to 2 mi.

However, the use of a strength design load factor of 1. The requirements for the upwind fetch were modified based on recent investigations into effects of roughness changes and transitions between them [Ref. Wind tunnel tests frequently measure wind loads that are significantly lower than required by Section 6. C, C, C, C, C]. Because of the great amount of air leakage that often occurs at large hangar doors, designers of hangars should consider utilizing the internal pressure coefficients for partially enclosed buildings in Fig.


Buildings of all heights Fig. Aerodynamic loads on tall buildings: Industrial Aerodynamics, 31, — In the edition, the parapet provisions have been updated as a result of research performed at the University of Western Ontario [Ref. The results of statistical studies of wind-speed records, reported by [Ref. July 28—August 1, The values were obtained from wind-tunnel tests conducted at the University of Western Ontario [Refs. Hence uplift load should also be considered by the designer.

For cases where the designer wishes to make a more detailed assessment of the surface roughness category and exposure category, the following more mathematical description is offered for guidance.

While local records of limited extent often must be used to define wind speeds in special wind areas, care and conservatism should be exercised in their use.

Vortices are asxe shed from one side of the body and then the other side, which results in a fluctuating force acting at right angles to the wind direction across-wind along the length of the body. The year recurrence interval is more consistent with serviceability requirements as they relate to human comfort consideration and typical design practice. This is a more realistic distance based on the calculation method in Section C6.
