HKWC2019 in NIDA Wind (HKIE Webinar)




Wind loads may significantly govern the structural design of high-rise buildings in coastal regions and cities such as Hong Kong. Recently, “Code of practice on Wind Effects in Hong Kong 2019” was launched by Buildings Department for practical design in Hong Kong. The structural engineers should calculate the wind loads with consideration of more effects such as across wind, torsional wind, direct sheltering effects, etc. This seminar introduces the theoretical background and the development of software for efficient, accurate and reliable use of the wind code. Advanced method has been developed for effective consideration of direct sheltering effect which is very tedious by manual or spread sheet calculation with much greater risk of human manipulation errors.
