Types of Wind Load Forces on Buildings:

For a structure to be sound and secure, the foundation, roof, and walls must be strong and wind resistant. When building a structure, it is important to calculate wind load to ensure that the structure can withstand high winds, especially if the building is in an area known for inclement weather. The main wind force-resisting system of a building is a vital component. While wind load calculations can be difficult to figure out because the wind is unpredictable, some standard calculations can give you a good idea of what a building can withstand.

  • Shear Load – Wind pressure that is horizontal and could make a building tilt.
  • Lateral Load – A pulling and pushing horizontal pressure that can cause a
  • building to move off its foundation.
  • Uplift Load – Pressures from wind flow that cause lifting effects.
