Note that the above file link also contains information on the Gust Effect Factor formulation for buildings (from ASCE 7-05), for trussed towers (based on Aquino, 2006), and the wind climate parameters for these formulas as notes from today's lecture and as guides in answering the homework and...
In addition, students were reminded of the Long Quiz 2 next week for which preparation is necessary for everything discussed thus far covering wind characteristics (wind speeds, topographic effects, etc), aerodynamics (pressure coefficients, etc), and dynamic wind effects. All previously mentioned textbooks and references are applicable. Added references are info can be found from this link:
Next week, after the quiz, we will wrap up the whole CE 256 Part 2 (Wind Effects) with a general discussion on design for wind effects.
