The value of average speed and the one of the gust
speed at a certain height H, depends on the rugosity
of the surroundings at a height H. In the case of the
zones with reduced rugosity umed has an greater value
than in the case of the zones with increased rugosity
at the same height H.
The amplitude of the variation of the gust speed is
smaller in the zones with reduced rugosity.
The response of a construction to the wind action is,
generally, the sum of two components:
 a quasistatic one of due to the average speed of wind
 a dynamic component given by the gusts with big
frequency
The current buildings are rigid, for this reason the
dynamic response to the wind action is negligible and
can be considered of static type.
The kinetic energy of the air masses in motion change
in to potential energy at the contact with rigid envelope of
the building, and is materialized by a pressure exerted
on the respective surface.
The relationship between the wind speed and the
pressure exerted on a surface normal to its direction is:
qb= 0, 625 nb2.
In structural design of the buildings, the wind actionis
modelled starting from a reference dynamic wind
pressure qb, associated to a territorial macrozonation.
It is established on the basis of an average wind speed
 the intermediation is done with instantaneous
values moderated within a 10 min interval
 the measurements are done in the open field to
a conventional height of 10 meters

the annual probability of exceeding in the
undesirable sense for a building is of 2%.
The values of qref, besides the fact that they
are refering to a conventional height of 10 m,
are also refering to plane building surfaces,
disposed perpendicular to the direction of the
wind and situated in open field.
In the case of constructions of usual type, the wind
pressure/sucction on the exterior or interior surface
of an envelope area is depending on height z with
respect to the surface of the ground.
The expression of this functions is, as given in
codes:
we=q p (ze)*c pe*giw [KN/m2] (interior pressures
respect the formula with diff. coeff.)
where:
we= the wind pressure /sucction on an envelope
area at a hight z above the ground level
Ze= the refference height for exterior pressure
When the expression is applied to an exterior surface the
coefficient cp has the notation cpe, when the expression
is applied to an interior surface the coefficient cp has the
notation cpi.
q p = the peak value of the dynamic wind pressure at a
certain height z above ground level is given by the
formula:
qp(z) = cpq(z) * qm(z)= cpq(z) * cr2(z) * q b
where
cr( z) = rugosity factor
cpq(z)= gust factor
qm(z)= mean value of dynamic wind pressure at a
certain height z
z0= rugosity caracteristic of the ground (in
meters with the significance of the rugosity
length)
kr( z0) = coefficient of rugosity.
The values of the two elements are given
in codes depending on the type of the
rugosity of the ground below
