Recognized as the sole source of detailed information on the design of wind resistant structures, this edition reflects the numerous changes that have occurred during the past decade. Revised, updated, and augmented, it includes the latest information on such topics as windstorm damage and insurance, hurricane micrometeorology, empirical aeroelastic models, progress and limitations in wind tunnel modeling, designing low-rise buildings, and behavior of roofing. A new chapter has been added on standards which includes a useful reference to a recently issued diskette containing an interactive computer version of the ASCE 7-95 Standard provisions for wind loads.
