    Abstract

    The fluctuating wind loads on buildings can be expressed in time domain and in frequency domain. The description in frequency domain as a spectrum is used in this project. A sensitivity study is executed to the windvelocity, the damping ratio, the coherence, the natural frequencies of the structure and the roughness length of the terrain.
