The Handbook was prepared by AWES to provide background information into wind and its actions, but also into the derivation of the Standard and its contents. It covers items such as:
– Nature of wind loading
– Wind speeds and multipliers
– Shape factors for structures
– Dynamic response
The Handbook will be launched with a day of lectures covering the contents of the book, held on 22 Feb 2012 at the University of Sydney. Please see the AWES15 section for more information. Attendees of the launch will be given a copy of the Handbook, which is included in the price of registration.
AWES is also now taking orders for the publication (Price: $95AUD per copy). Copies of the Handbook purchased prior to 22 Feb 2012 will be mailed out after the Handbook launch.
