ESDU 88019
Calculation methods for alongwind loading. Part 3. Response of buildings and platelike structures to atmospheric turbulence.
Abstract:
ESDU 88019 provides a stepbystep calculation method for the loading, accelerations and deflections of buildings and platelike structures. The loading is derived as the sum of a mean component together with background and resonant fluctuating components. Precalculated loading factors, based on the wind models in the Series, are included in graphical and equation form for estimation of the fluctuating components. Load/velocity admittance factors, which make allowance for the distortion of turbulence by the presence of the structure, are also included. The input data necessary are discussed and, where appropriate, approximate values are provided. A calculation sheet for the method is included and its use illustrated with a worked example. ESDU 92036 provides computer programs for this method, and for the similar method applied to linelike structures in ESDU 87035.Indexed under:
