The impact of the reduction factor of wind force coefficient to lattice structures

Structural mechanics

The article is devoted to standards of setting wind loads on lattice constructions, namely the effect of reduction factor of force coefficient used in used in the European codes. Results of determining of wind loads and method of Finite Element modeling the lattice structure in SCAD Office 11.5 as a three-dimensional structure is considered in this article. Comparison of the regulations of domestic and foreign standards by calculation of wind loads to buildings and structures is executed. The stress-strain state of the supporting framework of the lattice structure is analyzed paying attention to different loads contribution. The results are estimated.
