Good to know:
High winds can be very destructive in the construction of properties, as they generate pressure against the surface of a structure. The intensity of this “pressure” is called the wind load. The effect of the wind is dependent on the size and shape of a building, and calculating wind load is necessary for the design and construction of a safe, wind-resistant building.
To calculate wind load you need to review the projected area of the building, against the typical wind pressure of the location.
