Catastrophic Damages, Wind Load, STAAD PRO


In present scenario high rise structures have technical and economic advantages in areas of high population density, and have become a distinctive feature of housing accommodation in virtually all densely populated areas around the world. In contrast with low-rise and single-family houses accommodate more inhabitants per unit of area of land and decrease the cost of structures. In the recent times, there had been so many catastrophic damages caused by high wind speed especially in the U.S. and in the coastal regions of India which prove that many buildings that are currently in use are not fully wind resistant. This paper we have calculate the wind load using gust factor method by the present IS code [IS: 875 – (Part 3) – 1987] and as per the new code [IS: 875 – (Part 3) – 2015) for zone 3 with terrain category 3 using STAAD PRO Software.
