Wind Loading

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi!
 
Can anyone please tell me what wind loading do you use for design of fins (a glass panel sticking out) for highrise buildings?  Is it the design wind pressure plus the suction on the opposite side?  Or just the wind pressure on one side?
 
Also, for design of canopies, are there anything else to be considered aside from the design wind pressure applied upwards?
 
Regards to all.
