Tornadic Wind and Hurricane

A large steel frame structure for an Air Cooled Condenser simulated on STATDPRO

High winds and wind-borne missiles are often significant loadings for large exposed structures and buildings. The object of the analysis is to guide the compliance of the subject structure with the governing codes through suitable modifications to the design. The local damage of the structure from a wind-borne projectile is typically performed on LS-DYNA.
