Timber columns should be notched to resist uplift forces and cast into the concrete foundations in situ. These measures should reduce and combat wind loads; to be confident that a structure can resist cyclical loads cyclical testing wwind necessary see Appendix 3.

Because of failures caused by wind it is considered that this may also be true of emergency stores.

With laminar flow speed drops sharply, but with turbulence velocity falls only when the fluid is close to the surface. In this supplement the nature of wind loadihg and how design procedures can be improved are examined. Large roof overhangs should be avoided, or vents included in these to relieve wind pressure.

Combating wind loads For film plastic-clad greenhouses which are not dissimilar to emergency stores the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food MAFF, recommend that cladding is anchored at ground level either by gripping with a continuous structural member fixed to the main hoops, or by being buried in the trench not less than mm deep by mm wide, firmly backfilled and rammed with earth.

Similarly, every part of the structure should be tied together roof to walls, walls to walls, walls to floor, floor to foundations.


Wind lpading on emergency storage structures Introduction Emergencies requiring food relief are sadly a regular occurrence, especially in Africa. Although such measures may not be applicable to relief stores, efforts can be made to site these structures loaring from areas which experience strong winds, such as hill tops and valley bottoms, and behind any available cover or wind break.

Selection of a design wind speed involves consideration of the maximum gust speed for the geographical area, the building, its immediate location and the probability of high winds occurring during the design life.

This is effected by providing three-second gust speeds and the means to calculate wind loads and also some practical design aids.

Horizontal temperature changes are shown on a map by isotherms; isobars indicate pressure gradients, important in estimating winds.

Transducers monitored these loads and deflections all over the structure. Pressure coefficients Cpe for curved roofs of film plasticcovered greenhouses Single-span.

Every corrugation of roof edges and every other corrugation elsewhere see Loadihg 2 should be nailed.

Eaton Figure 3 A statistical factor S3 Air density d varies with air temperature and pressure see Table 5. Conditional instability is when humid air loses moisture by condensation c3 rain and then behaves like dry air.

When calculating total wind forces on a structure internal pressures also contribute.

Hodges, ; Timpson, ; Fortman, Mayo suggests that failures often relate to:. Wind forces on emergency storage structures E. Recomendation It is recommended that manufacturers and donors answer the following questions before supplying emergency stores: Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, 23 Twenty have recently been destroyed by wind in three disaster areas: There is no straightforward way of calculating wind loads on plastic-clad steel frame structures, but professional advice is obtainable.


In addition, Robertson suggests that some manufacturers of loadng plastic-clad structures may use sind design procedures.

Timber roofs should be connected to masonry walls with a fastening strap or reinforcing bar that is loadinh embedded in the concrete or masonry. If eaves ventilators are employed the structure should be strengthened with a ring-beam at eaves’ level.

Houghton and Carruthers, Valedictory Sadly, the author of this bulletin, Tate O’Dowd, died just before the manuscript went to press.

If timber walls are used it should be ensured that nails are driven in so they act in shear rather than in tension. All masonry construction should also be reinforced and horizontal reinforcement used round corners, between intersecting walls and between columns, infill walls and doors.
