Buildings can be considered an assembly of parts or components. These parts may be major structural elements or seemingly nonstructural elements that contribute to the enclosure of space. This course focuses on building structure and how it may be designed to resist pressures. Through the use of examples, a review is presented of the structural systems of two buildings, the possible construction types, and details to be considered when the design process focuses on the effects of wind. This is the third in a series of five courses on wind forces. Each part may be taken as an individual course. This 2022 edition is a substantial update of the original Wind Forces course first published in 2017.
