Sponsored by the Subcommittee on Wind-borne Debris of the Environmental Wind Engineering Committee of the Wind Engineering Division of ASCE.

Wind-Borne Debris Hazards provides a concise summary of the current state of knowledge on all aspects of wind-borne debris damage.

This book begins with an overview of the wind environment, the vulnerability of various structures to impact, responses to that impact, and post-storm field surveys. Subsequent chapters follow the path of a piece of wind-borne debris from motion initiation through flight to impact. The final chapters cover how models and data are used to assess the risk of structural damage and how design codes have responded to this risk.

This book will be valuable to engineering practitioners who are concerned with the risk of debris impact and mitigation.
