Wind Actions to BS EN 1991-1-4

PubJan14For most buildings in the UK, wind action is an important influence on structural design. BS EN 1991-1-4:2005+A1:2010 (the UK implementation of Eurocode 1 Part 1-4) provides a design standard which is up to date, authoritative and, in many respects, a significant evolutionary advance.

This design guide has been prepared to guide structural engineers through the process of establishing design wind actions for orthodox steel framed buildings in the UK, in accordance with the Eurocodes, UK National Annexes and other authoritative information.

This design guide sets out a straight forward procedure by which wind actions (both overall forces and local pressures) can be evaluated in accordance with the new standard. A comprehensive worked example demonstrates the procedure for a typical steel framed building.
