Serial Information: Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers, 1961, Vol. 126, Issue 2, Pg. 184-213
Document Type: Journal Paper
Abstract: 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.
