Abstract

Mitchell Humphreys studied internal pressures in buildings generated in windstorms. He found that understanding the constructed features of a building, such as cladding materials, building volume, and envelope porosity, can improve the prediction of internal pressures. Wind loading standards are using his results to optimize the structural design of buildings.
