Introduction:
Static wind pressures on towers:
Towers are generally considered as rigid structures and hence static wind pressures are
computed as per the Indian standard code. In computing the wind pressures variation
along the height, exposed areas of the columns and braces are considered.

## Gust pressures on towers:

Tanks supported on staging are treated as point like structures. As the height of the
staging is increased the tower becomes slender. The fundamental frequency of this point
like structure mainly depends on the mass concentrated at the top. The value of the
frequency gets reduced with the increase in the height of the tower.

## Design of Towers in accordance with IS 875-(Part 3)-1987:

Wind pressures acting at any height on a structure are computed by the methods
recommended by the IS code (IS 875-(Part 3)-1987). The code has recommended two
methods for computing the wind pressures based on the requirement.

Static method: Design wind speed (Vz) at any height can be calculated as follows:
Vz=Vb*K1*K2*K3,
Where Vz = Design wind speed at any height z in m/sec,
Vb=Basic wind speed for any site,
K1 = probability factor (risk coefficient),
K2 = Terrain, height and structure size factor and
K3 = Topography factor
K1, K2 and K3 are given by means of tables in the code. The design wind pressure at
any height above mean ground level shall be obtained by the following relationship
between wind pressure and wind velocity.
Pz=0.6VZ2, Where Pz = Design wind pressure in N/m2 at height z,
Vz = Design wind velocity in m/s height z.

## Gust effectiveness factor method

Hourly mean wind:
The variation of hourly mean wind speed with height shall be calculated as follows.
VZ=Vb*K1*K2*K3.
Where Vz =hourly mean wind speed in m/s at height z.
Vb = regional basic wind speed in m/s;
K1 = probability factor.
K2 = terrain and height factor.
K3= topography factor.
These factors are given in the code.

## Along wind load:

Along wind load on structure on strip area (Ae) at any height (Z) is given by:
Fz= Cf*Ae*Pz*G

Where, Fz = along wind load on the structure at any height z corresponding to strip
area Ae,

## Ae = effective frontal area considered for the structure at height z,

Pz = design pressure at height z due to hourly mean wind obtained as 0.6*vz2 (N/m2),
G= gust factor (peak load /mean load) and is given by:

## G=1+gf r* sqrt (B (1+ (Φ)) 2+SE/β)

gfr = peak factor defined as the ratio of the expected peak value to the root mean
value of a fluctuating load, and r= roughness factor which is dependent on the size of
the structure in relation to the ground roughness.

## B = background factor indicating a measure of slowly varying component of fluctuating

wind load and is obtained from Fig. 9 of the code .

## S= size reduction factor is obtained from Fig.10 of the code.

E = measure of available energy in the wind stream at the natural frequency of the
structure is obtained from Fig.11 of the code.

the code).

## Φ= gfr*sqrt((B)/4) and is to be accounted only for buildings less than 75 m height in

terrain category 4 and for buildings less than 25 m high in terrain category 3, and is to
be taken as zero in all other cases.

## Where Cy = lateral correlation constant which may be taken as 10 in the absence of

more precise load data,

## Cz = longitudinal correlation constant which may be taken as 12 in the absence of more

precise load data,

## B = breadth of a structure normal to the wind stream,

H = height of a structure,
Vh = Vz = hourly mean wind speed at height z,

fo - natural frequency of the structure, and L (h) = a measure of turbulence length scale.

## Details of present study:

The present study deals with the computation of deflection, torsional strength, bending
strength on towers of 9m height. The wind pressures are computed by using both the
methods as already described. Towers with height 9m and varying speeds 100 km/hr,
150 km/hr, 200 km/hr are considered for wind pressure analysis SUBJECTED TOgust
