Contribute generously to SEFI Fund for its existence - Engr.Siddiqi
Reports from Haiti,West Indies, suggest that the peak wind velocity (PWV) was around 300 kmh as hurricane 'Jeanne' swept over the island which tore apart concrete slabs.
The structural engineers in different states along coastline of the Bay of Bengal should not ignore such a possibility while designing a new building apart from seismic load;many buildings in Central Asia have survived major earthquake which were designed for high wind velocity.
The worst will be if a severe high velocity storm of this sort coincides with an earthquake of moderate intensity though the possibility is remote.
With best wishes.
