Methods are presented for the calculation of wind loads on tall structures. The 'static' case, where wind loads are taken as acting steadily, is considered briefly. Dynamic effects, which arise on elastic structures due to loads varying with time as a result of wind gusting and vortex shedding, are dealt with more fully. So-called 'galloping' oscillations are also considered briefly.
