This paper presents field measurement results of boundary layer wind characteristics over typical open country during the passages of typhoon Fung-wong passed by Wenzhou in July 2008. The field data such as wind speed and wind direction were measured from two propeller anemometers placed at the height of about 30m. The measured wind data are analyzed to obtain the information on mean wind speed and direction, turbulence intensity, gust factor, turbulence integral length scale and spectra of wind speed fluctuations. The results clearly demonstrate that the turbulence intensity and gust factor of typhoon Fung-wong are larger than normal, and there is a tendency for the turbulence intensities to decrease with the increase of the mean wind speed, however, there is another tendency for the turbulence integral length scale to increase with the increase of the mean wind speed. The power spectral densities of fluctuating wind speed in longitudinal and lateral directions obtained from the measured wind speed data roughly fit with Von Karman spectra. The results presented in this paper are expected to be of use to researchers and engineers involved in design of low-rise buildings.
