This classic source of detailed information on the design of wind-resistant structures offers updated coverage of construction methods and standards. Designers and engineers will find it a source of crucial knowledge concerning the atmosphere, the forces imposed on a structure by the wind, and the behavior of structures under the influence of these forces.
The three-part treatment begins with an overview of atmospheric factors and proceeds to considerations of wind loads and their effects on structures, from fundamentals to design applications. Updates for the third edition comprise new material on an extensive range of technical subjects, including across-wind and torsional effects on tall structures, damping of flexible buildings, and progress in wind tunnel modeling. WIth its attention to fundamentals as well as applications, this volume offers designers and engineers the information they need to assure the structural safety of their projects.
