    Abstract

    Extreme climatic events lead to loads on buildings and civil engineering works. Changes in climate will have an effect on the design loads. This paper presents an investigation into the relevance of the climate change scenarios with respect to the loads on buildings by wind, precipitation and temperature. Possible consequences to building codes are illustrated, and research questions are defined.
