Re: Wind velocity

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'll summarize from Table 1609.3.1:
for 85<V.3s<170 MPH
V.3s <95mph ->  V.3s = V.fm + 15MPH
V.3s >95mph ->  V.3s = V.fm + 20 MPH

Subject: RE: Wind velocity

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,
