Wind Forces Part 5: Wind Pressure Analysis, Strengthening Buildings, & Practical Considerations
For existing buildings that are found to have wind resistance deficiencies, there is often no easy way of correcting the deficiencies without damaging finishes...
Level: Intermediate Format: Text-based Duration: 1h 15m
Wind Forces Part 2: Wind Effects & Procedures for Wind-Resistant Design in Practice
While wind pressure typically develops on the surfaces of any obstruction placed in the path of the flow, the distribution of pressure on any surface of the obstruction varies, and the variation depends on the size, shape, and proportion of the obstruction...
