Document Type: Journal Paper


It is the purpose of this note to examine the relation between these parameters, risk of failure, and mean recurrence intervals for wind design. To this end, a rational method is presented for the selection of mean recurrence intervals that tend to insure consistent levels of safety for structures subjected to wind loads.
