Wind Science and Engineering is a guide to applying all the latest advances in wind science to civil engineering, construction and other relevant fields.
What does this book cover?
Wind Science and Engineering: Origins, Developments, Fundamentals and Advancements is one of the celebrated Springer Tracts in Civil Engineering. It takes an in-depth and nuanced look at wind energy and the effects wind action has on built structures. It examines what makes a structure more vulnerable to wind damage, and even touches upon the aerodynamic design of trains, road vehicles, sailing ships and aircraft as well as of buildings.
In addition, Wind Science and Engineering contains sections on:
