Wind Parameters of Texas Tech University Field Site
Wind parameters obtained from field data are generally simulated in wind tunnel for studying wind effects on structures. The result of the wind tunnel study depends on the reliability of field wind parameters and the ...
A Comparative Study of Wind Load Standards
The subject of this thesis is a comparative study of the wind load provisions specified in the major national standards. The basic premise is that two structures of identical shape and size and subjected to the same ...
Analysis of Data for the Response of Full-Scale Transmission Tower Systems to Real Winds
...procedures for calculating the statistical properties of wind and structural response data are discussed in this report- The objective of this research is to indicate statistical procedures for analyses of data of ...
Comparison of Window Glass Sample Strength Estimates: Full Scale Versus Concentric Rings
...The principal objective of this research is to test the hypothesis that surface strength parameters, m and k, are independent of glass plate geometry. Surface strength parameters obtained from full scale tests ...
The Strength of Weathered Window Glass Using Surface Characteristics
(Texas Tech University, 1981-08)
The general objective of the research is to evaluate tie strength of glass plates that have been in service as windows for several (>15) years. Included in this general objective are the use of analytical techniques to ...
