Book Details


Wind Engineering 1983, Part C contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Wind Engineering, held in Gold Coast, Australia, on March 21-25, 1983 and in Auckland, New Zealand, on April 6-7, 1983 under the auspices of the International Association for Wind Engineering. The conference provided a forum for discussing topics related to wind energy and wind engineering, from internal pressures and wind-induced heat losses to wind characteristics, wind power systems, and the dispersion of gaseous pollutants.
Comprised of 29 chapters, this volume begins with a detailed treatment of theory and experiment regarding the response characteristics of air pressure inside double-glazed windows. The effects of surrounding buildings on wind pressure distributions and ventilative heat losses for a single-family house are then examined, along with the nonlinearity of pressure differentials induced by wind and mechanical ventilation. Subsequent sections focus on topographic modeling of the dispersion of gaseous pollutants; the effect of wind environment on shelter; the effect of wind characteristics on structures; wind flow over hills and ridges; and wind power systems.
This monograph will be of interest to students, practitioners, and researchers concerned with wind energy and wind engineering.
