Abstract

A statistical analysis of South African wind speed data is presented. This investigation includes the estimation of annual maximum hourly mean wind speeds and gust speeds and additional information required for specialized design application. Alternative procedures for estimation extreme wind speeds are discussed and 50-year design isopleths for South African hourly mean and gust speeds are given.

'n Statistiese ontleding van Suid-Afrikaanse windspoedgegewens word verskaf. Hierdie ondersoek sluit in die berekening van jaarlikse maksimum waardes vir gemiddelde uurlikse wind- en rukwindspoed en aanvullende inligting wat nodig is vir gespesialiseerde ontwerptoepassings. Alternatiewe berekeningsprosedures vir uiterste windspoed word bespreek en 50-jaar ontwerpisoplete word verskaf vir die Suid-Afrikaanse gemiddelde uurlikse wind- en rukspoed.
