ST71.10.20.3 PSD Analysis of a Wind Load
This Webnote examines the procedure of defining wind PSD on structures. A preliminary step in determining the response of a structure to the fluctuating conditions is to define a spectrum of wind speeds. where
In this particular example, the following ambient conditions are assumed.
Roughness parameter k = 0.05;
Mean Wind Speed = 5 m/s.
Using these conditions Davenports equation generates the following wind speed PSD:
Prior to running the Strand7 solvers, care must be taken to...
