A site in the suburbs of York is being investigated for the location of an apartment block. The site is located 0.5km downwind from the start of suburban terrain. Upwind, beyond the edge of the site terrain is farmland with isolated trees. Reference wind speed data is available from the lecture notes. Terrain parameters can be estimated from Figure 1. To allow an assessment of the wind loading on the proposed building to be made, calculation of the variation of the design mean hourly wind speed profile with height is required. The calculation should be carried out for return period of 75 years. Calculate the design mean wind speed variation at the site up to 100m above the ground. Plot the distribution, indicating any notable features. Calculate the 1s gust wind speed variation at the site up to 100m above the ground. Plot the distribution, indicating any notable features. Relevant data graphs are available.
