The Inelastic Response of an Offshore Platform in Hurricane Andrew
Amoco's Gulf of Mexico South Timbalier 161A platform took a direct hit from Hurricane Andrew in August of 1992, experiencing loads which far exceeded its design load. The platform had...

Proposed Hurricane Wind Speeds for ASCE 7-95
A 2-3 second peak gust wind map has been proposed for the wind load provisions of ASCE 7-95, now in draft form. On the hurricane coast, speeds from published Monte Carlo analyses were...

Averaging Time and Maximum Speeds in Hurricanes
This paper discuses wind speed data obtained during Hurricane Andrew around Miami International Airport, at six anemometer locations which make up the wind shear warning network. Data...

Hurricane Windspeeds at Inland Locations
A critical review of the windfield and filling models used in the hurricane simulation procedure of Batts et al. [1980] clearly indicates that the hurricane windspeeds they obtained for...

A Statistical Analysis of Wind Damage to Single-Family Dwellings Due to Hurricane Hugo
The claim files of 575 policy holders of the South Carolina Windstorm and Hail Underwriting Association were analyzed to determine the nature of wind damage to single-family dwellings...

Prestressed Concrete Failures Due to Uplift
The paper presents some examples of prestressed concrete DOUBLE-TEE (DT) failures caused by hurricane Andrew. The DT's failures was mainly due to the negative moment created by uplift....

Gust Speeds in Hurricanes
Based on strip-chart records of wind speeds representing 11 recording stations and four hurricanes, it is concluded that gust factors for hurricanes generally exceed the gust factors proposed...

On Hurricane-Generated Seas
Two different situations in the relationship between wind speed and sea severity during hurricanes (and tropical cyclones) are clarified from analysis of measured data obtained by NOAA...

The Determination of Typhoon Design Wave By Synthetic Probibility Method
In summer and autumn, typhoons always take place in the northwest pacific. in the northern hemisphere, the typhoon is a large, anticlockwise, atmospheric eddy. Due to the strong wind speed,...

A Knowledge-Based Computer System for Financial Wind Risk Management
This paper presents the results of a sponsored applied research project conducted by a multi-disciplinary team to integrate state-of-the-art methods in wind and collateral (e.g., surge,...
