Title: wind pressures

Well, it’s not on top of the Grand, but on top of one of those buttes on the Jackson side looking up at the Grand.  And JH ski resort.  And the Gros Ventre range.  Absolutely amazing.

 

I’m not concerned about being conservative on the wind pressures, just checking because this is the highest I’ve seen.  Most of what I do here ends up being controlled by seismic.

 

The top of the Grand Teton is a good place to stand, isn’t it, Richard?  I would recommend it to all of you.

Gordon,

I have worked in Wyoming, I have a photo I took looking towards Alta from the top of the Grand Teton, and if you call it a "very windy site" it probably is what we lowlanders would call a hurricane..  That factor may not be too far off.
