Event description
Wind Loading to BS EN 1991-1-4

About this Event

This seminar will include a refresher on the basics for wind load assessment to BS EN 1991-1-4, including the important changes which are implemented via the National Annex. The code is currently under review, and a short summary of likely changes will be provided. In the second half of the seminar, some more advanced content is introduced, with an overview of key dynamic phenomena, and detail of how these are addressed in the code. The seminar will conclude with a review of current research into wind effects on buildings, highlighting a number of ideas which are currently receiving some attention in the research community.
