I have been involved with a panelized building system for areas subject to hurricane wind conditions. The design speed was specified at 200 mph. The 94 UBC does not have wind stagnation pressure coefficients for wind velocities above a maximum wind velocity (I think it was 110 mph). I did however notice that these coefficients were propertional to the velocity squared and was able to derive a parabolic equation that would predict the coefficients for any wind velocity. Is it acceptable to use this formula for wind loads as high as 200 mph? Is there other provisions for such a high wind velocity? How were the existing UBC coefficients derived? Mark Pemberton, P.E.
