1. Maps of Non-hurricane Non-tornadic Wind Speeds With Specified Mean Recurrence Intervals for the Contiguous United States Using a Two-Dimensional Poisson Process Extreme Value Model and Local Regression
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-301
Published: 11/12/2015
Authors: Adam L Pintar, Emil Simiu, Franklin T. Lombardo, Marc L Levitan
Abstract: This report describes a procedure for creating maps of non-hurricane, non-tornadic wind speeds for a set of recurrence intervals of interest between \num{10} and \num{100000} years over the contiguous United States. The procedure is carried out in t ...

2. Meteorological extremes
Published: 12/28/2012
Authors: Franklin T. Lombardo, Adam L Pintar, Antonio M Possolo, Emil Simiu, Dong Hun Yeo
Abstract: This entry reviews basic principles of the statistical analysis of large extreme values (EVs), the role of simulations for the development of relevant meteorological data sets, the interaction between the extreme value modeling ...

Published: 10/19/2012
Authors: Dong Hun Yeo, Franklin T. Lombardo, Dilip K Banerjee, Eric J Letvin, Emil Simiu, Marc L Levitan, Florian A Potra
Abstract: The paper summarizes recent research and development of computer-aided and computational methods in wind engineering at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Specific topics to be covered include: 1. Time-domain database-assis ...

4. Estimation of Hurricane Wind Speed Probablities: Application to New York City and Other Coastal Locations
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1773
Published: 10/11/2012
Authors: Dong Hun Yeo, Emil Simiu, Ning Lin
Abstract: This paper presents a procedure for estimating parametric probabilistic models of hurricane wind speeds from existing information on estimated wind speeds with various mean recurrence intervals (MRIs). Such models may be needed, for example, for ...

5. Large Eddy Simulation of Wind Loads on a Low-Rise Structure and Comparison with Wind Tunnel Results
Published: 7/2/2012
Authors: isam janajreh, Emil Simiu
Abstract: This work presents estimates of time histories of pressure coefficients at several taps on the roof of a 1/200 model of a 200 x 100 x 20 ft low-rise building with a 1/24 slope gable roof building. The estimates were obtained by large eddy simulation ...

6. Ultimate Wind Load Design Gust Speeds in the United States for Use in ASCE-7 (Journal of Structural Engineering, Vol. 136, No. 5, May, 2010 pp. 613-625).
Published: 5/31/2012
Authors: Emil Simiu, Franklin T. Lombardo, Dong Hun Yeo

7. An Assessment of Methods for Determining Wind Loads (NIST TN 1738)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1738
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Emil Simiu, Chris Letchford, Nicholas Isyumov, Arindam Gan Chowdhury, Dong Hun Yeo
Abstract: The purpose of this work is to present an assessment of methods for determining wind loads on buildings and other structures that warrant comment, correction or improvement. The assessment is intended to serve as a resource as a new version of the AS ...

8. Technical Basis for Regulatory Guidance on Design-Basis Hurricane-Borne Missile Speeds for Nuclear Power Plants
Published: 3/16/2011
Authors: Emil Simiu, Florian A Potra
Abstract: This report provides the technical basis for a potential new regulatory guide that would provide licensees and applicants with guidance that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable for use in selecting the desig ...

Published: 2/16/2011
Authors: Tuan-Chun Fu, Aly Mousaad Aly, Arindam Chowdhury, Girma Bitsuamlak, Dong Hun Yeo, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Wind loads on low-rise buildings in general and residential homes in particular can differ significantly depending upon the laboratory in which they were measured. The differences are due in large part to inadequate simulations of the low-frequency c ...

10. Database-Assisted Design for Wind: Veering Effects on High-Rise Structures
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1672
Published: 8/15/2010
Authors: Dong Hun Yeo, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Atmospheric boundary layer winds experience two types of effects due to friction at the ground surface. One effect is the increase of the wind speeds with height above the surface. The second effect, called the Ekman layer effect, entails veering -- ...
