# Introduction

•Wind is moving air. The air has a particular mass and moves in a particular direction at a particular direction at a particular velocity. It thus has kinetic energy of the from expressed as, E=1/2mv2 •The radiation effects are mainly responsible for Convection current either upwards or downwards. •It is generally blows horizontal to the ground at high speeds.

How wind force governing for tall structure?
• For tall structure more than 15 stories ,with innovations in architectural treatment, increases in strength of materials and advance in method of analysis, tall building structures have become more efficient and lighter and consequently more prone to deflect and even to sway under wind loading.
6

• If decrease cross sec. property of structural element with increase height of building • Construction cost per unit area decrease • Increasing lightness in weight per unit area • More danger against high velocity of wind force at high level

7

Typical flow of wind for tall structure-Turbulent flow of wind on longitudinal and transverse sides

8

Turbulent flow on tall structure due to upwind obstructions

Wind velocity increase due to large openings at lower floors

Different types of forces acting on structural element

Effect of wind load on tall structure
• Overturning due to wind overturning moment because of larger drift.

13

Example
• Building toppled other side due to more overturning moment.

14

When there is a lack of symmetry among resisting elements, wind will be induce more torsional effect

15

Example of failure of structure due to torsional effect

16

Analyses of wind force
• Wind Tunnel Experimental Method for static and dynamic effect • Detailed Analytical Method as per code IS:875-Part-3,Draft IS:875-Part-3. for static and dynamic effect.

17

OBJECTIVE OF WIND TUNNEL TEST
• Dynamic Response • Drag, Vortex shedding and wind separation from building surface. • To decide building configurations (shape)

18

Wind Tunnel test
• World Trade Center – New York 1973-2001

Protection effect of building
A favorable location of adjacent buildings can decrease the hurricane effects by reducing the wind loads

56

Unfavorable location of buildings adjacent to a hospital
A bad location of nearby buildings might induce increase of wind loads

57

Flat-slab systems without capitals present little resistance against lateral forces. Their use on hospitals should be avoided
