Wind: Wind Loading on Structures to EN 1991-1-4

Aim

This course introduces EN 1991-1-4, determination of wind velocity and wind actions, and determination of external and internal pressure coefficients on building structures.


Learning outcomes 

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
  

Tutor

John Owen is an Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham, where he has taught structural analysis and design for 24 years. He has research interests in wind engineering and structural dynamics and has also done research on tubular structures and structural health monitoring. John is a Fellow of the UK Wind Engineering Society, where he was also Chair from 2009-2012.


Intended for


Recently graduated civil and structural engineers who wish to study wind effects on structures in greater detail.
