Aims to provide the user with a commentary on the interpretation and use of EN1991, Eurocode 1: Actions on structures - General actions - Part 1-4: Wind actions. This title also includes a commentary on the changes introduced in the UK National Annex.

EN1991-1-4, Eurocode 1: Actions on structures - General actions - Part 1-4: Wind actions, is the head code for wind actions on structures and describes the principles and requirements for calculating design wind loads on structures.

The principal aim of this book is to provide the user with a commentary on the interpretation and use of EN1991, Eurocode 1: Actions on structures - General actions - Part 1-4: Wind actions, and on the expected changes that will be introduced by the associated National Annexes. In particular, the opportunity has been taken to add a commentary on the changes introduced in the UK National Annex.
