Wind Forces on Structures: Forces on Enclosed Structures

by Thomas W. Singell,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1958, Vol. 84, Issue 4, Pg. 1-24

Document Type: Journal Paper


Recognizing that the civil engineer needs to know more about the aerodynamic characteristics of structures, this paper analyzes the work of past and present investigators and correlates data relating to shape coefficients for various building shapes. Included is a series of tables from the Swiss Building Code which is the latest and most extensive data published. It is hoped this paper will assist the civil engineer in establishing more logical design criteria for proper economy and safety in structures.
