Wind Forces

Format: Digital Monograph
CE Info: Ineligible
Contact Info: Customer Service (

To misjudge the effect wind forces can have on a structure is to set up one\\\'s project for building failure. While architects may defer much of the quantitative work for wind forces to engineering consultants, that approach is not always feasible due to myriad details they produce in design plans. The course discusses the nature of wind, wind effects on buildings, procedures for wind-resistant design in practice, strengthening buildings for wind resistance, and practical considerations for wind-resistant buildings.
