Description

This Standard is Part 2 of the AS/NZS 1170 series Structural design actions.

The objective of this Standard is to provide designers of structures with wind actions for use in the design of structures subject to wind action. It provides a detailed procedure for the determination of wind actions on structures, varying from those less sensitive to wind action to those for which dynamic response must be taken into consideration. 

Wind speeds and direction factors are provided for a range of probabilities of exceedance. Other factors cover the environment around the structure, the geometry of the structure and the dynamic interaction of the structure with the wind.

It is intended to be used in conjunction with AS/NZS 1170.0, which gives the procedure for structural design. 

The Commentary to this Standard is AS/NZS 1170.2 Supp 1, Structural design actions— Wind actions—Commentary (Supplement to AS/NZS 1170.2:2002).

 

 

Scope

This Standard sets out procedures for determining wind speeds and resulting wind actions to be used in the structural design of structures subjected to wind actions other than those caused by tornadoes. The Standard covers structures within the following criteria:

  • (a) Buildings less than 200 m high;
  • (b) Structures with roof spans less than 100 m; and
  • (c) Structures other than offshore structures, bridges and transmission towers.

Notes:

  1. This Standard is a stand-alone document for structures within the above criteria. It may be used, in general, for all structures but other information may be necessary. Guidance on wind tunnel testing, reliable references and alternative data is given in AS/NZS 1170.2 Supp 1, Structural design actions—Wind actions—Commentary (Supplement to AS/NZS 1170.2:2002).
  2. Where structures have natural frequencies less than 1 Hz, Section 6 requires dynamic analysis to be carried out.
