The population today faces an acute shortage of land and space. To get rid of this problem, people have resorted to multi-storeyed buildings both for commercial use and for residential purposes. As the height of the buildings increase, wind flows to become an important consideration for the designers. For static structures, wind interacts only with the external portion of the structure, but in the case of dynamic structures, the wind influences the motion of the building as well.
However, the effect of the wind flow on a building depends on a number of factors like the height of the building, it’s location, number of storeys, etc.

With the advent of modern technology, the structures build nowadays are considerably low in damping and light in weight. As a side effect of this, these structures are more prone to the effect of wind flow that causes various effects on the structures. Therefore, the designs should be made keeping in view the wind loads that may act on the building and the structure should be capable enough of standing the probable load.
In this project, the analysis of the effect of wind loads on buildings of different heights using the ETABS software. The analysis is done using the Equivalent Static Method.
There are two components that determine the effect of wind load on tall structures. These are:

This will show how much wind load a building of a said specification can stand. And therefore, this gives an important point of consideration in designing a building that will be subjected to heavy wind loads, especially in areas where the effect of wind load is more prominent than the effect of an earthquake.
