71. Wind Effects on High-Rise Buildings: Database-Assisted Design Versus the High-Frequency Force-Balance Technique
Published: Date unknown
Authors: M Iancovici, Michael A Riley, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Database-assisted design (DAD) was originally developed for low-rise buildings. In this paper we show that it applies to flexible high-rise buildings as well, and that it has a number of significant advantages over the high frequency force balance (H ...

72. Wind Speed Estimation Uncertainties: Effects of Climatological and Micrometeorological Parameters
Published: Date unknown
Authors: S M Diniz, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: To achieve structures that are risk-consistent, structural reliability methods must be used that account for uncertainties with respect to the relevant parameters affecting the estimation of wind effects. In this paper we obtain measures of uncertai ...

73. Wind Speeds for the Estimation of World Trade Center Towers' Response
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William P. Fritz, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Estimates of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers response to wind by two North American wind engineering laboratories differed from each other by almost 40 %. A recent investigation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology determined th ...

74. Wind Speeds in ASCE 7 Standard Peak-Gust Map: Assessment
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Emil Simiu, R Wilcox, Fahim Sadek, James J Filliben
Abstract: The ASCE 7 peak-gust map division of the conterminous United States into two adjacent wind speed zones does not reflect correctly the country's differentiated extreme wind climate. The methodology used to develop the map averages out real climatolog ...
