In comparison with atmospheric boundary layer winds, which are customarily treated as stationary, winds associated with gust fronts originating from a thunderstorm/downburst exhibit rapid changes during a short time period, which may be accompanied by changes in direction. This introduces nonstationarity both in the mean and the standard deviation of wind fluctuations. In order to realistically capture characteristics of gust-front winds and their attendant load effects, a new analysis… CONTINUE READING
