Re: Wind speeds in California

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

It's predominantly 85 mph (as per the ATC link).  However, there are special zones with 100mph, for example, in the Los Angeles area.  So, if you design for 100 mph, you will be safe.

Can anybody tell me what you would use for the design wind speed in California for these sound barriers.
