Wind Effects on Structures: Modern Structural Design for Wind, 4th Edition
Focusing on the structural design of rigid and tall buildings, this book provides structural engineers with the knowledge and practical tools needed to generate designs accounting for wind behavior that incorporate the major technological, analytical and computational advances achieved in the last two decades. With clear explanations and documentation of the concepts, methods, algorithms and software available for accounting for wind loads in structural design, it also describes the wind engineers tasks in sufficient detail so that they can be thoroughly scrutinized by the structural engineer in charge of the design. The book will cover the following topics: State of practice vs. the state of the art Wind engineering inputs to the design process Structural design for wind loading.
