Information regarding online access to British Standards via British Standards Online can be found at http: A numerical evaluation and curve-fitting exercise carried out for practical prismatic buildings, including portal-frame structures, showed that simplifications could ns made to the algebraic relationships with only marginal loss of accuracy within a range of mildly dynamic structures.

Careers and apprenticeships Equal opportunities Vacancies Apprenticeships. The standard method for effective wind speeds assumes that the site is 2 km from the edge of a town, with sites closer to the edge treated as being in country terrain and sites further into the town treated as being at 2 63999-2, thus, the potential benefits of shelter from the town exposure are not exploited for any locations except those at exactly 2 km from the edge.

While the general methodology and pressure coefficients given in this standard may be used in other wind climates, it is essential to ensure that the reference wind data are consistent with the assumptions in this standard. Wind Engineering in the Eighties. Accordingly no interpolation between the three terrain categories is permitted in this bd. For porous walls and fences with solidity less than 0. In situations of multiple hills or ridges, this procedure is appropriate when applied to the single hill or ridge on which the site is situated.

Determines the effective wind speeds required by Stage 3: The examples in Figure 36 cover 6939-2 conditions likely to be encountered. The 699-2 drag coefficient should be assumed to act over zones F and P only of such roofs, with the values as given in Table 6. AMD is a Corrigendum.

Conventionally, estimation of the extreme wind climate in temperate ba has involved the analysis of a series of annual maximum wind speeds, for example using the method proposed by Gumbel [8].

Advanced Search Watchlist Search history Search help. For monopitch canopies the centre of pressure should be taken to act at 0. Option a is the simplest to implement when topography is not significant; option b ensures that estimates will 63992- exactly with the building axes; option c ensures that the most onerous topographic effects are included.

This covers a wide range of terrain, from the flat open level, or nearly level country with no shelter, such as fens, airfields, moorland or farmland with no hedges or walls, to undulating countryside with obstructions such as occasional buildings and windbreaks of trees, hedges and walls. If values of Ss are used they should be taken from Table D.

The zones start from the edge of the flat part of the roof as defined in Figure 17c. The positive pressures in Table 26 apply where the wall is directly exposed to the wind but give conservative values for the whole wall.

bz The frictional drag coefficient should be assumed to act over only zones F and P of such roofs, with values as given in Table 6. The effective height, He of any building that is higher than its surroundings in such terrain is thus the reference height Hr less the displacement height Hd.

However, a simplification has been introduced in the standard method which involves the calculation of only a single wind speed for each reference height. BSI offers members an individual updating service called PLUS which ensures that subscribers automatically receive the latest editions of standards. The resulting gradual deceleration of the mean speed and increase in turbulence has been accounted for in Table 22 and Table 23 by defining the site by its distance downwind from the coast and, in addition if it is in a town, by its distance from the edge of the town.


These values may be taken to be equivalent to the standard effective wind speeds and used in the standard method. Before any reduction in wind speeds is considered specialist advice should be sought.

The table of contents of the conference proceedings is generated automatically, so it can be incomplete, although all articles are available in the TIB. As each is assessed differently by the directional method, it is necessary to calculate the effective wind speed Ve twice, as follows, and to take the larger value of Ve obtained: These pressure coefficients are also applicable to silos, tanks, stacks and chimneys.

In 66399-2 case, a value of s may be derived ns Figure 9a and Figure 9b and Figure 10a and Figure 10b, and the smaller value used. The resulting frictional forces should be applied in accordance with 3. Directional method 3 Licensed copy: Fitting the dynamic pressure q to the FT1 model has been standard practice in most of Europe for many years, whereas the practice in the UK had previously been to fit the wind speed V.

Standards are also available from the BSI website at http: Wind data available in the Meteorological Office. Face loads are then resolved vectorially to give the overall load in the wind direction.

A minimum limit to the shelter factor of 0. Where considerable variation of pressure occurs over a surface it bw been subdivided into zones and pressure coefficients have been provided for each zone. When topography is to be considered, the altitude factor Sa should be determined from: NOTE 2 For sites in towns less than 0.
