As buildings increase in height, it becomes important to ensure adequate lateral stiffness to resist loads that might arise because of wind, seismic, or blast effects. This stiffness might be achieved in . — Recent earthquakes in India show that not only non-engineered but also engineered buildings in our country are susceptible even to moderate earthquakes. Indian Standard IS is revised in A number of buildings those were designed as per. Whether or not a building will be able to resist the effects of wind is dependent not so much upon the materials that are used but the manner in which they are used. It is a common belief that heavier buildings, such as those made of concrete block, are safer. its support, resistance to wind suction depends on the method of attachment and the correct installation of an appropriate number of fasteners. It is therefore essential that the cladding, fasteners and supporting structure are all specified to resist the design wind loading on the building.

Wind Resistance Wood’s Advantage Under Wind Loads Wood has a number of inherent characteristics that make it ideal for non-residential buildings in areas prone to high wind: • When structural wood panels such as plywood and oriented strand board (OSB) are properly attached to lumber framing members, they form some of.   Effect of wind Load On High Rise Building 1. Wind LoadOn High RiseBuilding Indian Standards Code of Practice for Design Wind Loads.•Special Publication of BIS SP64 Wind Load Explanatory Hand Book.•Wind And Earthquake Resistant Buildings Structural Analysis And Design By Bungale S. Taranth. This book explains concepts in behaviour of buildings during earthquakes. The book dwells on basic concepts in earthquake resistant design of buildings, first describes these at a conceptual level and then articulates further with numerical examples. It is an attempt to respond to some of. significant, the assessment of wind effects will be broadly similar to the Code of Practice on Wind effects Hong Kong – The two terrain categories used in the former code were replaced with a single general terrain and new guidance on the effect of topography on local wind .

Some buildings already use advanced wind-compensating dampers. The Citicorp Center in New York, for example, uses a tuned mass damper. In this complex system, oil hydraulic systems push a ton concrete weight back and forth on one of the top floors, shifting the weight of the entire building . Wind exerts three types of forces on a structure: Uplift load - Wind flow pressures that create a strong lifting effect, much like the effect on airplane wings. Wind flow under a roof pushes upward; wind flow over a roof pulls upward. Shear load – Horizontal wind pressure that could cause racking of walls, making a building tilt. ˇ ˆ ˙ ˝ ˛ ˚˜!"# ˘$ % ˚˚& ’ ˜ ’(˚)*’+$) i /01! /21! /31! //1! 5$ˇ! ˙ 9& =& >ˆ %= 6 ˇ ˛ ˙˙ ˙ (j k! ˛˛ * &ˆ8 8ˆ8’ 9c=9 ’i8. At least one building code requires the values to be reduced by 50 percent in high-hazard seismic design areas (ICBO, ). Gypsum wall board is certainly not recommended as the primary seismic bracing for walls, although it does contribute to the structural resistance of buildings in all seismic and wind .
