Determination of Basic Wind Pressure for Structural Design in Saudi Arabia

Auther : Dr. Mohammed S. Rahal - Dr. Egal K. Aljofi - Dr. Mohammed H. Abdelnaby

     The results of extreme value analysis of wind speed data from twenty-four meteorological stations in Saudi Arabia together with five stations in five other neighbouring countries are presented.  The objective of this work is to present the design wind speeds and basic wind pressures corresponding to 50 and 100 year recurrence periods at an altitude of 10 m for Saudi Arabia . The chosen recurrence periods are corresponding to a certain limit of risk acceptance criteria.  These wind speeds are averaged over a time of fifteen minutes.  The results are presented in a table to provide the wind speeds and basic wind pressures for structural design purposes in Saudi Arabia.
