|Title:||Time-Dependent Wind Effects: Database-Assisted Design and Estimation of Ultimate Limit States for Rigid and Flexible Structures|
|Published:||November 01, 2002|
|Abstract:||We describe the database-assisted design approach for wind loading, and its application for estimating limit states including ultimate limit states for low-rise buildings and tall buildings experiencing along-wind, across-wind, and torsional dynamic effects. Database-assisted designs account for the temporal and spatial variation of wind effects and can result in far more risk-consistent, safe, and economical structures than those based on conventional standard provisions. Structural reliability methods are currently applied to database-assisted designs with a view to developing improved estimates of probabilities of failure under wind loads.|
