Wind Effects on Structures Modern Structural Design for Wind 

Emil Simiu 

Preference :

The quarter of a century that elapsed since the publication of the third edition of Wind Effects on Structures has seen a number of significant developments in micrometeorology, extreme wind climatology, aerodynamic pressure measurement technology, uncertainty quantification, the optimal integration of wind and structural engineering tasks, and the use of “big data” for determining and combining effectively multiple directionality-dependent time series of wind effects of interest. Also, following a 2004 landmark report by Skidmore Owings and Merrill LLP on large differences between independent estimates of wind effects on the World Trade Center towers, it has increasingly been recognized that transparency and traceability are essential to the credibility of structural designs for wind. Amain objective of the fourth edition of Wind Effects on Structures is to reflect these developments and their consequences from a design viewpoint. Progress in the developing ComputationalWind Engineering field is also reflected in the book.
