Met Office and Eaton Notes: Robertson suggests These measures should reduce and combat wind loads; to be confident that a structure can resist cyclical loads cyclical testing is necessary see Appendix 3.

Winds are common over hot deserts, and are caused by the rise of warm air which finds its way through the cooler air above it; a special case is the dust devil. Castle, the Meteorological Office, Advisory Services.

This information includes tables of pressure coefficients for tunnel shaped, film plastic-clad structures see Table 2.

Proceedings of the Institute of Civil Engineers. Another manufacturer uses the British Standards Institution Code of Practice CP3applicable to rigid structures, for inflatable warehouses which are flexible.

With laminar flow speed drops sharply, but with turbulence velocity falls only when the fluid is close to the surface. Such structures should be supplied with an erection manual giving:. On the windward side, open doors and windows will increase the pressure inside and will increase the loading on parts of the roof and walls already subjected to external suction; on the leeward side these openings will decrease the pressure and decrease the force on the roof, but increase the force on the windward wall see Figure 5.

Hodges, loadin Timpson, ; Fortman, Comparing these pressure coefficients with those for rectangular rigid structures see Tables 3 loadnig 4 there is no obvious relationship, and therefore the BSI CP3 Code is not applicable to plastic-clad emergency structures with different shapes. Recomendation It is recommended that manufacturers and donors answer the following questions olading supplying emergency stores:. Gust speeds are obtained from reliable local data or from: There is no straightforward way of calculating wind loads on plastic-clad steel frame structures, but professional advice is obtainable.


If eaves ventilators are employed the structure should be strengthened with a ring-beam at eaves’ level. Land and Water Service, Technical note No. Because emergency storage structures are used for food relief in developing countries where no supervision is easily available, it is important that they are accompanied by clear instructions in diagram form to overcome language problems.

Cp3 Chapter v Part 2 for Wind Load

Mayo suggests that failures often relate to:. In c3 context it has also been shown how wind loads on rigid structures may be derived from local 3-second gust speeds. In this supplement the nature of wind damage and how design procedures can be improved are examined. A programme of cyclic load tests were conducted to simulate the continual buffeting that a structure receives during a hurricane. Foundation failure is a common cause of building collapse under wind action Robertson, 1 In this context the following addresses may be useful.

ChV-Part2 defines the mean ‘turbulent’ wind speed for the United Kingdom as the 3-second basic gust speed to be exceeded on average once in fifty years.

With turbulent flow there is interchange of energy between layers and therefore mean velocity is almost the main stream speed. Valedictory Sadly, the author of this bulletin, Tate O’Dowd, died just before the manuscript went to press.

Wind forces on emergency storage structures Initial indications are that gusts of about 3 seconds or longer are appropriate design gusts depending on the size of the structure or member in question. Normally in the troposphere temperature falls with height, the rate loadig fall being described as the lapse rate.

The structure was erected exactly as it would have been in Tonga and simulated wind forces were applied and distributed so that they produced the same structural effect as design loads. If timber walls are used it should be ensured that nails are driven in so they act in shear rather than in tension.

When calculating total wind forces on a structure internal pressures also contribute.

Mali, Uganda and Sudan. This is effected by providing three-second gust speeds and the means to calculate wind loads and also some practical design aids. To obtain the design wind speed the basic gust speed must be multiplied by constants,S1, S2 and 53, see Appendix 2.

Recomendation It is recommended that manufacturers loadibg donors answer the following questions before supplying emergency stores: Such instability can lead to rapid and violent convection of air masses which in turn cause storms and associated winds. Appendix 2 Calculation of wind forces and pressures, with examples If wind is brought to rest against the windward face of a structure all its kinetic.


AFRC Institute of Engineering Research has the necessary expertise to design plasticclad emergency structures with particular attention to the method of load transfer lloading cladding to structure and from structure to the ground.

If these speeds are underestimated this has serious consequences for design because the square of the wind speed is employed to calculate wind load, which will therefore be much reduced. Conclusion If donors and suppliers of plastic-clad emergency stores take the advice given here or seek specialist advice as a matter of urgency it is likely that design can be improved.

Timber columns should be notched to resist uplift forces and cast into the concrete foundations in situ.

Timber roofs should be connected to masonry walls with a fastening strap or reinforcing bar that is firmly embedded in the concrete or masonry.

Overseas Development Natural Resources Institute ISBN 0 ISSN Summaries Summary Wind forces on emergency storage structures The supplement aims loadong alert donors, designers, suppliers and users of emergency stores to the magnitude and importance of wind loads in tropical countries. Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Wiind, 23 Eaton Figure 3 A statistical factor S3 Air density d varies with air temperature and pressure see Table 5.

Any mistakes are my own responsibility. Correctly applied storm rigging for tents wimd that wind forces are distributed evenly; mountaineering tents are low, steeply pitched and present no vertical faces to the wind.

For rigid structures these basic gust speeds can be translated into wind loads based on the dynamic pressure of wind; for calculation of wind forces see Appendix 2. Journal of Agricultural Engineering Research, 33, Wind forces on emergency storage structures E. The pressure coefficient on the underside of any roof overhang should be taken as that on the adjoining wall surface The coefficient for a low-pitch monopitch roof should be taken as
