Re: ASCE 7-02 wind load on a sign?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
just for grins see how this works

wind force =  .5 * Rho * V^2  * Cd  *Area

Rho= air density
V = wind speed
Cd (drag coefficient) ~2.0
Area= area of sign exposed to wind

use consistent units & the results should be pretty close to the ASCE 7
wind loading or the laws of physics need to be checked
