Complete description

A comprehensive, integrated treatment of wind engineering, reviewing fundamentals, applications to design, and basic analytical tools. The book furnishes detailed design procedures and data for wind-resistance in tall buildings, tall stacks, hyperbolic cooling towers, trussed frameworks, suspension bridges, offshore structures, nuclear power plants and many other structures. Design procedures are illustrated step-by-step with examples. Fundamentals encompass micrometeorology, climatology, aerodynamics, structural dynamics, aeroelasticity, probability and statistics, structural reliability and structural engineering. Top page
