In addition, the front and back pressures are not combined because the designer may be designing separate elements on each face of the parapet. If a more accurate representation of gust effects is required, the alternative procedure in the following section can be used. Tornado occurrence data of the last 15 years can provide a more accurate tornado hazard wind speed for a specific site.

The component and cladding tables in Fig. The following is offered as guidance for these situations: Selection of the appropriate internal pressure coefficient is left to the judgment of the design professional. In this case, the effective wind area is the area associated with the wind load that is transferred to the mullion. It was this type of error that led to the large variations in speed in the nonhurricane areas of the ASCE wind map. Some buildings located in a wind-borne debris region may not be vulnerable to wind-borne debris.

Accordingly, the glazing in the new building, from 30 ft 9. These definitions relate to the proper selection of internal pressure coefficients, GC pi. The requirement for protection 30 ft 9.

First, a design using the map results in an ultimate load loads inducing the design strength after use asfe the load factor 7–95 has a more uniform risk for buildings than occurred with earlier versions of the map.

For the pressure coefficients given in Fig.

The following values have been used in preparation ace the figures: Wind tunnel tests frequently measure wind loads that are significantly lower than required by Section 6. Channeling effects can be caused by topographic features e. The velocity pressure exposure coefficient K z can be obtained using the equation: Ascf example tall building is used to demonstrate the analysis using the database. C] has estimated that the majority of buildings perhaps as much as 60 percent to 80 percent have an exposure category corresponding to Exposure B.


The defining criteria for rigid, in comparison to flexible, is that the natural frequency is greater than or equal to 1 Hz. Local bending moments in the dome shell may be larger than predicted by this method due to the difference between instantaneous local pressure distributions and that predicted by Fig.

One rational method is provided in the following text. However, the site is 0. As this database is experimental in nature, it will be expanded and refined as additional wind tunnel data is made available. In this case, the pressure coefficient should be separated for the effect of top and bottom pressures, or conservatively, each surface could be designed using the C N value from Fig.

Several references provide detailed information and guidance for the determination of wind loads and other types of design data by wind tunnel tests [Refs. Note also that for all 7-5 slopes, all eight load cases must be considered individually to determine the critical loading for a given structural assemblage or component thereof.

A tabulation is also provided for a wind speed equal to the square root of 1. The interior zone loads should be applied.

The design-level speed map has several advantages. Based on full-scale measurements of buildings under the action of wind, the following expression has been proposed for wind applications [Ref. This scale has found broad usage by hurricane forecasters, local and federal agencies responsible for short-range evacuation of residents during hurricane alerts, as well as long-range disaster planning and the news media.

For further questions please contact our TIB customer service. The 80 percent limit may be adjusted by the ratio of the frame load at critical wind directions as determined from wind tunnel testing without specific adjacent buildings, but including appropriate upwind roughness, to that determined by Section 6.

Additional pressure 7: Buildings with flexible diaphragms are not sensitive to torsion because the diaphragms are incapable of transferring the torsional moments. C] suggests 1 percent and 1. Attention is made to Section 6. Note that damping levels used in wind load applications are smaller than the 5 percent damping ratios common in seismic applications because buildings subjected to wind loads respond essentially elastic while buildings subjected to design level earthquakes respond inelastically at higher damping levels.

Given the response characteristics of the instrumentation used, the peak gust is associated with an averaging time of approximately 3 s. It is not the intent of this standard to exclude the use of other recognized literature for the design of special structures, such as transmission and telecommunications towers. C through C, particularly since the Japanese data set has limited observations for the more flexible buildings sensitive to wind effects and Japanese construction tends to be stiffer.

Examples of cladding include wall coverings, curtain walls, roof coverings, exterior windows fixed and operable and doors, and overhead doors. Gust energy in the wind is smaller at frequencies above about 1 Hz. These variations are due to building geometry, low attached buildings, nonrectangular cross-sections, setbacks, and sloping surfaces. It should be noted that for Exposure B the tabulated values of K z in Section 6. When glazing is breached by missiles, development of higher internal pressure may result, which can overload the cladding or structure if the higher pressure was not accounted for in the design.

For membrane roof systems, the effective wind area is the area of an insulation board or deck panel if insulation is not used if the boards are fully adhered or the membrane is adhered directly to the deck. Aerial photographs, representative of each exposure type, are included in the commentary to aid the user in establishing the proper exposure for a given site.

The procedure allows for the level of structural reliability required, the effects of differing wind exposures, the speed-up effects of certain topographic features such as hills and escarpments, and the size and geometry of the building or other structure under consideration. ASCE, 2— To account for this effect and the fact that many buildings exhibit maximum response in the across-wind direction the standard currently has no analytical procedure for this casea structure should be capable of resisting 75 percent of the design wind load applied simultaneously along each principal axis as required by Case 3 in Fig.

A value of 1. The design pressures for components and cladding on walls or roofs shall be selected as the greater of the wind tunnel test results or 80 percent of the pressure obtained for Zone 4 for walls and Zone 1 for roofs as determined in Section 6.

The reduced probability that the design wind speed may not occur in the particular direction for which the worst pressure coefficient is recorded has not been included in the values shown in the figure.
