All masonry construction should also be reinforced and horizontal reinforcement used round corners, between intersecting walls and between columns, infill walls and doors. With turbulent flow there is interchange of energy between layers and therefore mean velocity is almost the main stream speed.

Houghton and Carruthers, In addition, Robertson suggests that some manufacturers of film plastic-clad structures may use incorrect design procedures. Land and Water Service, Technical note No. 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.

Wind forces on emergency storage structures: Combating wind loads

Building Research Establishment, Department of the Environment. Values of Cf are shown in Figure 4 and an example of aind calculation is shown below. No charge is made for single copies of this publication sent to governmental and educational establishments, research institutions and non-profit making organizations working in countries eligible for British Government Aid.

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

Racking forces and uplift forces were applied using hydraulic rams which operated a series of cables, beams and load spreaders. Air density d varies with air ,oading and pressure see Table 5.

This figure will be revised on account of Hurricane Gilbert Lawson Large roof overhangs should be avoided, or vents included in these to relieve wind pressure. 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.


Free copies cannot normally be addressed to individuals by name, but only under their official titles. 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 rectangular buildings with double pitch roofs pressure coefficients for individual external loads are shown in Tables 3 and 4 BSIEaton Paper presented to 10th CIB Congress.

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. Such structures should be supplied with an erection manual giving:. This movement of air and the forces it exerts are the subjects discussed next.

The nature of weather Wind is air in motion caused by horizontal xp3 difference, itself caused by heating and cooling of the troposphere – the lower 11 km of the atmosphere. 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.

Comparing these pressure coefficients with those winf rectangular rigid structures see Tables 3 and 4 there is no obvious relationship, and therefore the BSI CP3 Code is not applicable to plastic-clad emergency structures with different shapes.

Valedictory Sadly, the author of this bulletin, Tate O’Dowd, died just before the manuscript went to press. If eaves ventilators are employed the structure should be strengthened with a ring-beam at eaves’ level.

Gust speeds are squared for this purpose, hence the importance of accuracy at the design stage to achieve robust structures.

Research findings support the use of quasi-static loadings – even for plasticfilm greenhouses. 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:.

Mali, Uganda and Sudan. Horizontal temperature changes are shown on a map by isotherms; isobars indicate pressure loadkng, 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.

Ultimate failure of the structure was caused by fracture of a strap at 1. Gust speeds are obtained from reliable local data or from: Lam and Lam suggest that 3-second gust speeds are adopted as the basis for building design because the natural oscillation period for most structures is only a few seconds, but Robertson states that 3-second gust speeds are used primarily because of limitations in the response of wind-measuring instrumentation.

Appendices Apendix 1 Lapse rate The expression which describes the relationship between pressure p and density d in the atmosphere is. Timber roofs should be connected to masonry walls with a fastening strap or reinforcing bar that is firmly embedded in the concrete or masonry. Met Office and Eaton Notes: Summaries Summary Wind forces on emergency storage structures.

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.

Selection of a design wind speed involves consideration of the maximum gust speed for the geographical loadkng, the building, its immediate location and the probability of high winds occurring during the design life. There is no straightforward way of calculating wind loads on plastic-clad steel frame structures, but professional advice is wijd.

The index of expansion n is related to the lapse rate mentioned above by the expression. Such structures should be supplied with an erection manual giving: Dry rather than humid air only reaches instability over hot surfaces like roads or deserts where convection causes a shimmering effect. When calculating total losding forces on a structure internal pressures also contribute. Figure 4 Force coefficients Cf for rectangular buildings Judicious placing of such openings can ensure that internal forces are always suction forces and therefore reduce total roof and wall loads except for the windward wall, for example by placing a ridge ventilator c;3 a low pitch roof BSIEaton These measures should reduce and combat wind loads; to be confident that a structure can ccp3 cyclical loads cyclical testing is necessary see Appendix 3.
