Abstract:

Field studies assessing the damage caused by hurricane-force winds have revealed a need for simple methods to determine wind velocities causing structural damage. Development of limit wind gage concepts is described. Two concepts, 1 aerodynamic cones in arrays and 2 omnidirectional venturi with recording manometer, provided consistent airstream velocity readings in wind tunnel tests. It is recommended that units of the aerodynamic cone arrays and of the omnidirectional venturi devices be installed for evaluation at several sites where recording anemometers are available and high winds have been experienced.
