3. 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 H. 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. 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 H. 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 ...

7. A PROPOSED TECHNIQUE FOR DETERMINING AERODYNAMIC PRESSURES ON RESIDENTIAL HOMES
Published: 2/16/2011
Authors: Tuan-Chun Fu, Aly Mousaad Aly, Arindam Chowdhury, Girma Bitsuamlak, Dong H. 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 ...

8. 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 H. 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 -- ...

9. Wind and Structural Engineering: Ensuring an Effective and Transparent Division of Responsibilities
Published: 6/30/2010
Authors: Emil Simiu, Dong H. Yeo
Abstract: To help assure safe performance under loads that may occur during a structure s life, structural design practices are regulated by code provisions, and the design of the structure must be approved by a qualified public official. For the design and ap ...

10. Database-Assisted Design for Wind Effects on High-Rise Structures and Its Potential for Assessment of CFD Simulation
Published: 5/24/2010
Authors: Dong H. Yeo, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Efforts are being made to perform CFD-based estimates of wind effects on tall buildings that are sufficiently reliable to allow their use in lieu of estimates based on wind tunnel measurements. For practical purposes the assessment of the quality of ...
