Written by seven internationally known experts, the articles in this book present the fundamentals and practical applications of contemporary wind engineering. It covers complex problems in wind-building interaction from the perspective of a structural designer, examining both experimental and computational approaches and their relative merits.
The book presents state-of-the-art material in a rapidly progressing area. Junior architects and engineers will learn the treatment of wind engineering, an area not traditionally taught at underground university programs. Junior structural designers will be informed about the progress made on experimental and computational wind engineering design of complex structures.
