Nicholas Cook ... 150 pages - Publisher: Thomas Telford Publishing (January, 1999) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0727727559 - ISBN-13: 978-0727727558.

All buildings in the UK must now adhere to the recently published wind code BS 6399-2. The introduction of a new code is often traumatic, especially so in this case,as the previous code has been in place for 25 years.
The author's considerable practical knowledge of wind engineering, together with his involvement in drafting this standard and his experience in conducting workshops on this subject make him the ideal person to convey the strengths and weaknesses of BS 6399-2 in this guide. Following recent amendments to BS 6399-2 (2002) this popular guide has been revised.

Developed as a resource for practicing engineers, while simultaneously serving as a text in a formal classroom setting, Wind and Earthquake Resistant Buildings provides a fundmental understanding of the behavior of steel, concrete, and composite building structures. The text format follows, in a logical manner, the typical process of designing a building, from the first step of determining design loads, to the final step of evaluating its behavior for unusual effects. Includes a worksheet that takes the drudgery out of estimating wind response: The book presents an in-depth review of wind effects and outlines seismic design, highlighting the dymamic behavior of buildings. It covers the design and detailing the requirements of steel, concrete, and composite buidlings assigned to seismic design categories A through E. The author explains critical code specific items and structural concepts by doing the nearly impossible feat of addressing the history, reason for existence, and intent of major design provisions of the building codes. While the scope of the book is intentionally broad, it provides enough in-depth coverage to make it useful for structural engineers in all stages of their careers.

Tall and super-tall buildings are going up all over the world, notably in east and south Asia, the Pacific Rim and the Middle East. Advances in materials, structural design, and wind enginerring ensure that these buildings meet strength and safety requirements. But wind-induced building motion can cause structures to creak and groan, elevator cables to clash, horizons to "swing," and human occupants to feel dizzy, nausea, or highly anxious. Wind-Induced Motion of Tall Buildings presents an overview of current research on occupant response to motion in tall buildings. This state-of-the-art report describes the physiology and psychology of the human perception of motion and explains the factors that can be used to characterize a building's movement. The authors summarize the results of field studies and motion simulator experiments that examine human perception of and tolerance for building motion. they survey the serviceability criteria adopted by international standards organizations and offer general acceptance guidelines based on peak acceleration thresholds. Finally, they identify design strategies that can mitigate wind-induced building motion through structural optimization, aerodynamics treatment, and vibration dissipation or absorption. The human tolerance for wind-induced building motion can vary greatly and poses a challenge in new buildings of ever-increasing height and complexity of shape. property developers, building owners, and design professionals working on tall buildings will use this report to ensure that occupants remain comfortable and secure in tall buildings during periods of strong wind.

Wind forces from various types of extreme wind events continue to generate ever-increasing damage to buildings and other structures. Wind Loading of Structures, Third Edition fills an important gap as an information source for practicing and academic engineers alike, explaining the principles of wind loads on structures, including the relevant aspects of meteorology, bluff-body aerodynamics, probability and statistics, and structural dynamics.

Written in Line with International Standards: Among the unique features of the book are its broad view of the major international codes and standards, and information on the extreme wind climates of a large number of countries of the world. It is directed towards practicing (particularly structural) engineers, and academics and graduate students.

The main changes from the earlier editions are:
  • Discussion of potential global warming effects on extreme events
  • More discussion of tornados and tornado-generated damage
  • A rational approach to gust durations for structural design
  • Expanded considerations of wind-induced fatigue damage
  • Consideration of aeolian vibrations of suspended transmission lines
  • Expansion of the sections on the cross-wind response of tall slender structures
  • Simplified approaches to wind loads on "porous" industrial, mining, and oil/gas structures
  • A more general discussion of formats in wind codes and standards
Not dedicated to a specific code or standard, Wind Loading of Structures, Third Edition highlights the general format and procedures related to all major codes and standards, addresses structures of various types, and presents you with topics not typically covered in traditional texts such as internal pressures, fatigue damage by wind forces, and equivalent static wind load distributions.

This helpful guide focuses on the wind load provisions of Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI 7-10, that affect the planning, design, and construction of buildings for residential and commercial purposes. The 2010 revision of the Standard significantly reorganized the wind load provisions, expanding them from one to six chapters. Simplified methods of performing calculations for common situations were added to the Standard, and guidelines for components and cladding were gathered in a single chapter. Wind Loads provides users with tools and insight to apply the Standard in everyday practice. This revised and updated guide introduces readers to the relevant sections of the Standard and provides a comprehensive overview of the design procedures and the new wind speed maps. Ten chapters with 14 worked examples demonstrate the appropriate use of analytical and simplified procedures for calculating wind loads for a variety of common structure types. The guide also answers more than 30 frequently asked questions, grouped by topic. This book is an essential reference for practicing structural engineers, as it offers the most authoritative and in-depth interpretation of the wind loads section of Standard ASCE/SEI 7-10.
