Wind pressures on building envelopes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Building envelopes of glass are subject to wind-induced loads. Wind pressures for design purposes are obtained following applicable building codes or standards. Details of wind pressures given in the ASCE 705 standard and commentary on parameters of these pressure criteria are given in this chapter. An example is also included to illustrate determination of wind loads on components of the building envelope.
