This Digest provides information for engineers and architects about the nature of wind action on and around buildings and structures. It describes common types and causes of wind damage, and shows how good design can minimise wind actions on buildings. The Digest also discusses the principal differences between BS 6399: Part 2 and the previous wind loading Code of practice.
Please note that this is a scanned copy of a paper originally published in 1995, so the text is not as clear as in documents created as pdf files.
