Study of Load Effects on a Dome Due to Fluctuating Wind Loads
The present study attempts to compare three contemporary techniques available to estimate peak load effects on structures from limited pressure histories, obtained from Wind Tunnel tests. A wind tunnel test was performed ...
Wind Effects on a Full-Scale Frame
The design of structural members entails computation of members' stresses generated due to various loads such as dead load, live load, wind load, earthquake load etc. This study restricts itself to the determination of ...
Wind Loading Effects and Equivalent Static Wind Loading on Low-Rise Buildings
Wind-induced pressures acting on the Wind Engineering Research Field Laboratory (WERFL) of Texas Tech University are integrated over each surface to obtain three forces and moments at the base of the building along the ...
Tropical Cyclone and Mid-Latitude Characteristics and Physical Mechanisms Contributing to Extratropical Transition in the Western North Pacific
(Naval Postgraduate Academy, 2000-12)
This study of extratropical transition (ET) of tropical cyclones (TCs) in the western North Pacific examines 30 cases during 1 June through 31 October 1994-98 using Navy analyses, plus geostationary satellite visible, ...
