Abstract:
Any structure must be re arded as a whole in computing wind stresses; widen the building is unsymmetrical in any respect and is of great height, the labor of making the closest practicable approximation to the true stresses is not only justified, it is essential. Author gives a basis of design for high wind forces and presents an example computation as well as several charts to facilitate design procedure.
