Abstract

Two procedures, one subjective and one analytical can be used to evaluate potential winstorm damage to exisitng buildings. Results of these valuations are useful in determining the responses of the architectural and structural systems of the buildings. From the evaluation, areas of safety can be identified for occupant protection and alternative plans for building function in the event of a windstorm can be formulated. (from paper).
