dc.description.abstractThis guide presents to designers, builders, government and private building authorities, and building owners and occupants a series of effective methods for improving the resistance of new and existing buildings against high winds. The methods described may be applied to improving the construction of new buildings as well as to increase the wind resistance of existing buildings. This material offers guidelines for selecting the location and orientation of buildings and the building shapes, for suggesting methods of construction, for recommended building details, and for local production of connectors and fasteners. It covers two common types of construction— masonry and timber—as well as selected details based on local materials such as bamboo and adobe.
