ABSTRACT: This report provides background and recommended criteria for the serviceability design of tall buildings subject to wind loading, based on available research, engineering practice, and successful buildings currently in service. Recommended serviceability limit states on perception of motion and lateral deflection are provided for the design of tall buildings under wind loads.
This document is the third in a series of Design Guides developed by the Applied Technology Council, with funding in part from the ATC Endowment Fund. The series is intended to provide succinct, state-of-the-art information on important design issues for practicing structural engineers. The first such document, ATC Design Guide 1, Minimizing Floor Vibration, was published in 1999, and the second, ATC Design Guide 2, Basic Wind Engineering for Low-Rise Buildings, was published in 2009.
