Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Dynamic Response of Structures


The random fluctuations of wind gusts produce dynamic interaction with structures. The objectives of this paper are to identify distinguishing differences in hurricane and tornado winds and to discuss issues relating to structural dynamics for these windstorms.

Subject Headings: Structural dynamics | Hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones | Tornadoes | Wind gusts | Dynamic structural analysis | Wind engineering
