Wind Stresses in Multi-Storey Buildings. A Simple Solution Within Safe Limits

The possibility of multi-storey buildings being constructed in the near future with light pre-fabricated internal partitions makes it important to ensure that wind stresses are correctly calculated. The American practice of assuming the points of contraflexure in the stanchions to be mid-way between the floors can involve serious errors and the continental practice of using three member equations is a little too laborious in the case of high buildings.
