A revised version is presented of a procedure for calculating the along-wind response of tall buildings previously developed by the writer. This version: (1)Incorporates recent improvements in the modeling of mean wind profiles and of turbulence intensity; (2)includes a correction in the Monte Carlo integration algorithm employed to obtain the rms values of the fluctuating response and thus results in more accurate values of the calculated along-wind response; and (3)is simpler to use. A numerical example is given illustrating the use of the procedure.
