Rationale for Determining Design Wind Velocitiesby A.G. Davenport,
Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 5, Pg. 39-68

Use of term extreme wind velocity averaged over a mile a minute as basic design wind velocity; systematic relationship between ground roughness and wind velocities near ground and its rate of increase with height; estimates of ratio of surface velocity to gradient velocity; extreme-value data for British Isles.
