Covering routine buildings, tall buildings, and bridges, Design of Buildings and Bridges for Wind contains a wealth of step-by-step numerical examples to assist structural engineers in understanding and using the elements of wind and structural engineering required for design. This hands-on guide features:
* Information on how to determine design wind loads and wind effects for both routine and special structures
* Information allowing structural engineers to effectively scrutinize estimates of wind effects submitted by wind engineering consultants
* Clear, transparent procedures for developing estimates of wind effects based on aerodynamic data supplied in electronic form by wind tunnel operators
* Access to wind speed databases and software for determining wind effects on rigid and flexible structures (nist.gov/wind)
