This Note focuses on a load-type that is sensitive to the environment. As such, the UK Annex to the Eurocode plays a significant part, as it makes reference to wind speeds that are unique to the UK. Designers should be aware that there are a large number of variables/conditions when determining wind loads on structures, and as a result, are referred to the code text more frequently than in other Notes in this series.
