Abstract

A new format for the gust factor G = 1 + g sigmaX/etaX and the peak factor g is proposed in such a way that these quantities have a given probability of exceedance. With reference to a SDoF model, the largest value CDF of diisplacement X is obtained by means of both Monte Carlo simulation and analytical tools. G and g are computed from the fractiles of this CDF.
