Supplement to the National Building Code of Canada, British Library Online Contents BSI offers members an individual updating service called PLUS which ensures that subscribers automatically receive the latest editions of standards. Advanced Search Watchlist Search history Search help. To do so would introduce too much complexity with only a marginal saving in the resulting wind loads. NOTE Instead of calculating the crosswind breadth B and inwind depth D for the complex building plan, these dimensions may be determined 3699-2 the smallest rectangle or circle which encloses the plan shape of the upwind wing or of the whole building, respectively.

NOTE When the wind direction is normal to the eaves, i. Part 2 Wind bss. To obtain bz speed for each station, all the maximum wind speeds in storms vs were first abstracted, irrespective of direction. The resulting frictional forces should be added to the normal forces as described in 2. Table of contents conference proceedings The table of contents of the conference proceedings is generated automatically, so it can 639-92 incomplete, although all articles are available in the TIB.

When determining overall forces 6399- the building, the contribution of frictional forces should be taken to act in the wind direction and added to the normal pressure load given by P. Over a smooth surface such as open country the wind speed is higher near the ground than over a rougher surface such as a town.


The reduction factors of Table 31 should be used only for the verge zones Q to S with the parapet height h determined at the upwind corner of each respective zone.

Because of the fluctuations of wind direction found in practice and in order to give the expected range of asymmetric loading, both patterns should be considered.

It is 639-2 constant aim of BSI to improve the quality of our products and services. Cambridge University Press, NOTE Wind load on a partially completed structure may be critical and will be dependent 6399- the method and sequence of construction.

NOTE 2 Interpolation for intermediate pitch angles may be used between values with the same sign. Where considerable variation of pressure occurs over a surface it has been subdivided into zones and pressure coefficients have been provided for each zone.

NOTE In this case the value of Sa, based on the site altitude, compensates for residual topography effects. Information on standards BSI provides a wide range of information on national, European and international standards through its Library and its Technical Help to Exporters Service.

John Wiley and Sons, For details of these and other benefits contact Membership Administration.

When considering low rise buildings which are close to other tall bx the rules for effective height will not necessarily lead to conservative values and specialist advice should be sought. Figure 35 639-2 Key to general method for flat roofs 3.

External pressure coefficients for zones O and P on the downwind faces are given in Table NOTE Hipped roof forms are treated separately in 2. This does not preclude the free use, in the course of implementing the standard, of necessary details such as symbols, and hs, type or grade designations.

NOTE 3 When the result of interpolating between positive and negative values is in the 6399- —0. The crosswind breadth B and inwind depth D are defined in Figure 2. NOTE 2 Wind tunnel tests are recommended when the form of the building is not covered by the data in this standard, when the form of the building can be changed in response to the test results in order to give an optimized design, or when loading data are required in more detail than is given in this standard.

Face loads are then gs vectorially to give the overall load in the wind direction. However, due to contributions from other sectors, the overall risk will be greater than the required value.

In this circumstance, the following apply. NOTE The standard pressure coefficients may be used for buildings and elements of generally similar shape. Table 17 — Internal pressure coefficients Be for buildings with dominant openings Ratio of dominant opening area to sum of remaining Cpi openings and distributed porosities 2 0. These values may be taken to be equivalent to the standard effective wind speeds and used in the standard method. Steep-pitched surfaces springing directly from the ground which meet along the top edge to form a ridge, e.

The reduction factors of Table 31 should not be applied to any zone.

BS 6399-2:1997

This enabled one set of direction factors to be proposed. For steeper roofs, the effects of parapets should be taken into account by using the procedure given in 3.

NOTE 1 Permanent forest and woodland may be treated as town category.
