Abstract

In this chapter, the wind characteristics described in the design codes are explained. First, the general characteristics of natural wind are explained, and various parameters used in the two representative Japanese bridge design standards are defined. Finally, the effects of local topography on the design wind characteristics are introduced as an example of recent development in wind resistant design methods.
