Descripción editorial

Wind forces from extreme wind events are the dominant loading for many parts of the world, exacerbated by climate change and the continued construction of tall buildings and structures. This authoritative source, for practising and academic structural engineers and graduate students, ties the principles of wind loads on structures to the relevant aspects of meteorology, bluff-body aerodynamics, probability and statistics, and structural dynamics.

This new edition covers:

Climate change effects on extreme winds – particularly those from tropical cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons

Modelling of potential wind vulnerability and damage

Developments in extreme value probability analysis of extreme wind speeds and directions

Explanation of the difference between ‘return period’ and ‘average recurrence interval’, as well as ‘bootstrapping’ techniques for deriving confidence limits

Wind over water, and profiles and turbulence in non-synoptic winds

An expanded chapter on internal pressures produced by wind for various opening and permeability scenarios

Aerodynamic shaping of high- and low-rise buildings

Recent developments in five major wind codes and standards

A new chapter on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), as applied to wind engineering

A greatly expanded appendix providing the basic information on extreme wind climates for over 140 countries and territories
