AbstractFor some structures the forces exerted by wind are the largest they are called upon to withstand. To a large degree, therefore, the magnitude and action of these forces determine the economy that can be affected in these structures. The difficulty of estimating the wind forces in design, both with regard to their magnitude and manner of action places them among the principal causes of structural failure.
