By the end of the course, you should be able to:
- Describe the basic principles of EN 1991-1-4
- Determine site-specific wind data for a site in the UK
- Determine the design wind loads on a typical building structure and its cladding
Recently graduated civil and structural engineers who wish to study wind effects on structures in greater detail.
