Comparing CP3 and BS 6399: Part 2 - UK Wind Climate and Design Pressure

My first two features* comparing CP3 and BS 6399: Part 2 covered the rules on ground roughness and the modification of the ‘division by parts’ rule. In this feature I cover the remaining aspects of the design wind speed rules - the climate-dependent parameters. This is the only component of the wind Codes that applies solely to the UK. I then compare the design wind speed and dynamic pressure predicted by both Codes for various sites across the UK, demonstrate how best to eliminate unwanted conservatism, and introduce the design aids available for the parts of the Code covered so far.
