Wind Loading of Structures 2nd Edition 

John Holmes

Preference :

Wind loading competes with seismic loading as the dominant environmental loading for structures. They have produced roughly equal amounts of damage over a long time period, although large damaging earthquakes occur less often than severe wind storms. On almost every day of the year a severe wind storm is happening somewhere on the earth—although many storms are small and localized. In the tropical oceans, the most severe of all wind events—tropical cyclones (including hurricanes and typhoons)—are generated. When these storms make landfall on populated coastlines, their effects can be devastating.

  • 6. Internal pressures 
  • 7. Laboratory simulation of strong winds and wind loads 
  • 8. Low-rise buildings
