Wind Engineering and Structural Dynamics

Ning Lin

Students learn how to account for wind effects in structural design to ensure that the performance of structures subjected to the action of wind are adequate during their anticipated life from the standpoint of both structural safety and serviceability.Three linked topics are discussed:(1) the wind environment,(2) the relation between that environment and the forces it induces on the structure, and (3) the behavior of the structure under the action of these forces.
