Generation of Large Directional Wind Speed Datasets from Smaller Synoptic Storm or Thunderstorm Data Samples
For structures sensitive to wind directionality, methods for the estimation of wind effects require the use of time series of directional wind speeds covering time periods exceeding the length of the Mean Recurrence Interval of interest in design. This study proposes a procedure for generating such time series from relatively short wind data sets. The focus in this paper is on the estimation of the parameters of a probabilistic model of the wind speeds. The wind speed data being generated can be used within the framework of the Database-Assisted Design approach to determine wind effects on buildings by accounting for wind directionality.
