CE 256 Part 2 (Wind Effects) - Session 1

Today I gave Session 1 of my part, talking about typhoon damages, typhoon engineering, why it is important, and a little bit about meteorology.  Actually, I was not able to cover everything so next session I will still be talking a little bit more about meteorology and typhoon engineering before I move on to my official Session 2, which is about "Defining the Wind" and the basic wind loading equation which stems from fluid mechanics.

For students and other interested parties, some reading material related to Session 1 can be found in [this link].

The primary textbook and additional references mentioned earlier are also used for this Session.

Here's an online view of the primary reference for Session 1 (loads slowly though because it's a large file!):
