ASCE Publishes Book on Wind-Borne Debris

The book covers the current state of knowledge on all aspects of wind-borne debris damage caused by hurricanes and tornadoes.

The American Society of Civil Engineers has published a new book, "Wind-Borne Debris Hazards." The book, sponsored by the Subcommittee on Wind Borne Debris of the Environmental Wind Engineering Committee of the Wind Engineering Division of ASCE, covers the current state of knowledge on all aspects of wind-borne debris damage caused by hurricanes and tornadoes.

The book begins by outlining the wind environment, the vulnerability of various structures to impact, responses to that impact, and post-storm field surveys. "Wind-Borne Debris Hazards" then follows the path of one piece of wind-borne debris from motion initiation through its flight and impact, with later chapters discussing how models and data are used to assess structural damage risk and how design codes have responded to that risk.

ASCE represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries. It was founded in 1852 and is the oldest U.S. engineering society.
