Wind pressure loading cycles for glazing during Hurricanes


Letchford, CW and Norville, HS, Wind pressure loading cycles for glazing during Hurricanes, Journal of Wind Engineering & Industrial Aerodynamics, 53, (1) pp. 189-2068. ISSN 0167-6105 (1994) [Refereed Article]

A wind pressure loading cycle has been developed that aims to simulate the fluctuating wind loads experienced by wall cladding during the passage of a hurricane. Hour long wind pressure records from the Texas Tech University (TTU) Wind Engineering Research Field Laboratory (WERFL) have been used to derive the loading cycle. © 1994.
