Abstract:
Experiences based on storm damage during the past few years indicate that buildings can be erected without major increase in cost to withstand the ravages of storms, provided resistance to forces encountered during storms has been given careful consideration by the designer. . .Using a typical residental building as an example, design considerations and construction details are advanced which can help make a building storm-resistant in areas with either moderate or severe storm exposure.
