Extreme wind load criteria

Kishor C. Mehta, Christopher Letchford

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Determination of wind loads involve many parameters. These parameters can be divided into three categories; wind climate, localized wind characteristics and wind-structure interaction. Using the wind loading formulation of ASCE 7-98, the paper discusses each parameter for calculation of wind loads on transmission line structures.
