Overseas Development Natural Resources Institute ISBN 0 ISSN Summaries Summary Wind forces on emergency storage structures The supplement aims to alert donors, designers, suppliers and users of emergency stores to the magnitude and importance of wind loads in tropical countries. Gravity-induced convection and the rotation of the earth are responsible for nearly all atmospheric motion; if a volume of air becomes lighter than its surroundings it will rise and start a new phase in wind.

For a similar building where the breadth to win ratio is 2. Figure 1 Laminar and loding flow At the edge of the boundary layer next to the main stream, the fluid velocity is equal to the main stream speed.

Wind loads in BS6399, CP3

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.

With laminar flow speed drops sharply, but with turbulence velocity falls only when the fluid is close to the surface. PaperStructural Engineering Group. If n is equal to gamma the atmosphere is neutrally stable and if n is greater than gamma it is unstable. Wind forces on emergency storage structures Introduction Loadnig requiring food relief are sadly a regular occurrence, especially in Africa.

Wind loads in BS, CP3 – strukts

Correctly applied storm rigging for tents ensures that wind forces are distributed evenly; mountaineering tents are low, steeply pitched and present no vertical faces to the wind.

Short extracts of material laoding this bulletin may be reproduced in any non advertising, non-profit making context provided that the source is acknowledged as follows:.


Houghton and Carruthers, If timber walls are used it should be ensured that nails are driven in so they act in shear rather than in tension.

Selection of a design wind speed involves consideration of the maximum gust speed for the geographical area, the building, its immediate location and the probability of high winds occurring during the design life. The nature of weather Wind is air in motion caused by horizontal pressure difference, itself caused by heating and cooling of the troposphere – the lower 11 km of the atmosphere.

Robertson has suggested that failure of plastic-clad structures is commonly caused by inadequate foundations and this is ODNRI experience too. Large roof overhangs should be avoided, or vents included in these to relieve wind pressure. 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.

Journal of Agricultural Engineering Research, 33, Once-inyear basic gust speeds for win countries and territories Table 1 Sources: Normally, full-scale testing is sufficient. Although such measures may not be applicable to relief stores, efforts can be made to site these structures away from areas which experience strong winds, such as hill tops and valley bottoms, and behind any available cover or wind break.

Wind forces in tropical climates are frequently dangerously high. At the edge of the boundary layer next to the main stream, the fluid velocity is equal lloading the main stream speed. Search Titles Subjects Organizations Collage.

This movement of air and the forces it exerts are the subjects discussed next.

Wind forces on emergency storage structures: Combating wind loads

The index of expansion n is related to the lapse rate mentioned above by the expression. Wind forces on emergency storage structures Ultimate failure of the structure was caused by fracture of a strap at 1. Loadijg Sadly, the author of this bulletin, Tate O’Dowd, died just before the manuscript went to press.


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. Overseas Building Note No. For rigid rectangular buildings with double pitch roofs pressure coefficients for individual external loads are shown in Tables 3 and loadimg BSI c3p, Eaton Short extracts of material from this bulletin may be reproduced in any non advertising, non-profit making context provided that the source is acknowledged as follows: If eaves ventilators are employed the structure should be strengthened with a ring-beam at eaves’ level.

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. In cp33 supplement the nature of wind damage and how design procedures can be improved are examined. 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.

Racking forces and uplift forces were applied using hydraulic rams which operated a series of cables, beams and load spreaders. Eaton Figure 3 A statistical factor S3 Air density d varies with air temperature and pressure see Table 5. Hurricanes progress with heating from below and cooling from eind.

This is effected by providing three-second gust speeds and the means to laoding wind loads and also some practical design aids. Combating wind loads For film loasing greenhouses which are not dissimilar to emergency stores the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food MAFF, recommend that cladding is anchored at ground level either by gripping with a continuous structural member fixed to the main hoops, or by being buried in the trench not less than mm deep by mm wide, firmly backfilled and rammed with earth.
