Design wind force coefficients for freestanding canopy roofs of membrane structures
Languages of publication
The present study examines the wind-induced behaviour of free-standing membrane canopy roofs with various types of roof-supporting systems and presents wind force coefficients for designing such roofs. The effects of roof deformation and choice of roof-supporting system on wind force coefficients are investigated. The characteristics of wind-induced responses of the roofs are taken into account for improving the wind force coefficients that we previously proposed based on the results of wind tunnel experiment with rigid roof models.
