Claes Dyrbye

Preference :

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of wind effects on structures. It starts with the load chain, then moves on to meteorological considerations, atmospheric boundary layer, static wind load, dynamic wind load, and scaling laws used in wind-tunnel tests. Includes the latest information on the Euronorms: Eurocode 1, Actions on Structures. Provides a logical and comprehensive treatment of the basic principles.
