I have a note from an ASCE 7 wind seminar by Kishor Mehta & Dale Perry that says the 3-sec gust speed is = 1.2 x fastest-mile speed.  110 mph ?fastest-mile approximately? would equal 132 mph ?3-sec gust?.

What is the correlation between the "fastest mile" wind velocity and the "3-sec gust" wind velocity. For example, what is the equivalent of a 110 MPH fastest mile velocity using the 3-sec gust approach? Regards,
