Abstract

An investigation has been carried out to study the effect of various wind parameters on the response of multistory buildings subjected to wind induced forces. This study is concerned with the wind response of the buildings located at six building sites in Sohar, Thumrait and Saiq regions of Oman. A typical plan of a multistory framed building has been chosen for the present investigation. The wind and the other related data appropriate to these regions have been used in the analysis. It turns out from the present study that the response of the building located at a site in a country terrain of a region has higher values than the response obtained for the same building if constructed in a town terrain of the same region with other parameter combinations remaining invariant. It is recommended that a database for the wind parameters, based on the available wind and other related data for different regions of Oman, should be developed for the design of buildings subjected to wind induced forces.
