Title: Design of Concrete Buildings for Wind Stresses
Author(s): Albert Smith
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 101-107
Abstract:I wish to discuss three points in concrete building design in relation to wind stress: 1. What dependence, if any, should be placed on walls and partitions. 2. If no dependence is placed on walls and partitions, what is the ultimate strength of reinforced-concrete buildings against wind? 3. What devices can be used to increase the strength of such buildings against wind? In regard to partitions and walls, I wish to advance the view that no dependence should be placed upon them.
