SubjectWind loads
AbstractWind loading on roofs remains to be a complex phenomenon and one of most common factor in roofs failure. This is mainly due to the fact that wind-flow conditions around buildings and wind-induced effects on such buildings have dynamic characteristics that are time and space related. From a space perspective, the wind's characteristics are affected by aspects such as building geometry, site topography, and architectural features. From a time perspective, the wind dynamic characteristics are affected by wind speed, turbulence intensity and wind direction.
