The Engineering Laboratory
has an established long-term collaboration with the NIST
Statistical Engineering Division in the analysis of
extreme wind speeds and other extreme phenomena in wind engineering.
This site includes material on extreme wind speeds and on effects
induced by extreme winds on buildings. The site contains links to
data sets, software, and publications, as well as instructions for
users and numerical examples. The site was developed by Alan Heckert
of the Statistical Engineering Division, NIST. Additional contributors
are listed in the Acknowledgements section.
