Abstract

Current wind engineering practice as reflected, for example, in the American National Standard ANSI A58.1-1982, incorporates results of research conducted in large part in the 1960’s and 1970’s in three main areas: (1)micrometeorology, (2)extreme value climatology, (3) and wind tunnel testing in turbulent flow.
