All buildings in the UK must now adhere to the recently published wind code BS 6399-2. The introduction of a new code is often traumatic, especially so in this case,as the previous code has been in place for 25 years.

The author's considerable practical knowledge of wind engineering, together with his involvement in drafting this standard and his experience in conducting workshops on this subject make him the ideal person to convey the strengths and weaknesses of BS 6399-2 in this guide. Following recent amendments to BS 6399-2 (2002) this popular guide has been revised.

Designers’ most common questions and problems are addressed in this guide along with detailed design guidance for estimating wind loads to the new code.  Wind Loading sets out clearly why the changes to the code were necessary and in what context the changes will increase or decrease loads, as well as providing clear practical guidance on the provisions of the code and giving assistance in the form of realistic worked examples.
