Statistics and Analysis of Typhoons Landing and Failure Mechanism of Coastal Low-Rise Buildings in China
In order to reveal the status of typhoon landfall in China coastal areas, the coastal areas and frequency of typhoon landing were compared with the statistical analysis in the paper for nearly 50 years; combined with the wind pressure of low-rise buildings under typhoon in China's coastal, structures damage of low-rise buildings were investigated. The results show that, the southwest coast of Guangdong landfall the largest number of typhoon landing, while the coastal areas of Fujian and Zhejiang have larger number of strong typhoons; turbulence great impact on surface air pressure; It was also found that the high suction pressure zones occurred around the windward roof edges at a wind azimuth of 450,and wind pressure along the roof corner just behind the roof ridge. The results of the present study are expected to be useful for the future development of a simple approximate formula for the low-rise buildings of the coastal area for design use.
