Wind loads in BS6399, CP3

Wind forces on emergency storage structures A programme of cyclic load tests were conducted to simulate the continual buffeting that a structure receives during a hurricane. Wind forces in tropical climates are frequently dangerously high.

Although such measures may not be applicable to relief stores, efforts can be made to winx these structures away from areas which experience strong winds, such as hill tops and valley bottoms, and behind any available cover or wind break.

Its larger relative is the tornado, a storm whose surface winds cause severe structural damage. Pressure coefficients Cpe for curved roofs of film plasticcovered greenhouses Single-span.

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 this supplement the nature of wind damage and how design procedures can be improved are examined. There is no straightforward way of calculating wind loads on plastic-clad steel frame structures, but professional advice is obtainable. Research findings support the use of quasi-static loadings – even for plasticfilm greenhouses.

Met Office and Eaton Notes: The Building Research Establishment Eaton, and the Meteorological Office have provided 3-second basic gust speeds for a selection of tropical countries Table 1.

Gust speeds are squared for this purpose, hence the importance of accuracy at the design stage to achieve robust structures. Such instability can lead to rapid and violent convection of air masses which in turn cause storms and associated winds. To obtain the design wind speed the basic gust speed must be multiplied by constants,S1, S2 and 53, see Appendix 2. Because of failures caused by wind it is considered that this may also be true of emergency stores.

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. Introduction Emergencies requiring food relief are sadly a regular occurrence, especially in Africa. Racking forces and uplift forces were applied using hydraulic winc which operated a series of cables, beams and load spreaders.

Once-inyear basic gust speeds for selected countries and territories Table 1 Sources: Combating wind loads For film plastic-clad 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.

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

Summaries Summary Wind forces on emergency storage structures.

Twenty have recently been destroyed by wind in three disaster areas: Eaton Figure 3 A statistical factor S3 Air density d varies with air temperature and pressure see Table 5. The various structures required to store this food have been evaluated O’Dowd et al. Robertson has suggested that failure of plastic-clad structures is commonly caused by inadequate foundations and this is ODNRI experience too. This is effected by providing three-second gust speeds and the means to calculate wind loads and also some practical design aids.

Normally, full-scale testing is sufficient. Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, 23 If these speeds are underestimated this has serious consequences for design because ooading square of the wind speed is employed to calculate wind load, which will therefore be much reduced.

Horizontal temperature changes are shown on a map by isotherms; isobars c;3 pressure gradients, important in estimating winds. Wind forces on emergency storage structures Introduction Emergencies requiring food relief are sadly a regular occurrence, especially in Africa.

Hurricanes progress with heating from below and cooling from above.

The supplement aims to wimd 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 Aerodynamics, 16, The structure was vp3 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. Ultimate failure of the structure was caused by fracture of a strap at 1.

Another manufacturer uses the Loadng Standards Institution Code of Practice CP3applicable to rigid structures, for inflatable warehouses which are flexible. 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:. 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.

Robertson suggests On the windward side, open doors and windows will increase the pressure inside and will increase the loading wknd parts c3p 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.

Any mistakes are my own responsibility. Figure 1 Laminar and turbulent flow Loadong the edge of the boundary layer next to the main stream, the fluid velocity is equal to the main stream speed.

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.
