64. Structural Reliability Estimates and Database-Assisted Design for Wind
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: F Minciarelli, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu, Mircea Grigoriu
Abstract: We propose a probabilistic methodology for developing improved estimates of extreme wind effects and load factors in standard provisions for wind loads. We obtained the following results: (1) the discrepancy between current estimates of safety indic ...
