G. in regard to long term trends as they might be induced by the climatic change. Basically, uncertainties may lead to over- or under-estimations of the true design value. While over-estimations may lead to unnecessary expensive structures, underestimations may lead to structures which have a lower reliability than intended. e. the probability of erroneously estimating a too low value of the design wind speed is limited to an acceptable low value. This error probability is the 2 Estimation of the Design Wind Speed 29 complementary to the confidence.

Strictly speaking, independent events can only be identified taken a closer look to large scale weather maps. As a fair approach, however, it has become common practice to assume a new event if the gap of small wind speeds exceeds say 12 or 24 h. Tropical cyclones show a similar behaviour, however, for a slightly different time scale. The example in Fig. 6 shows measured mean values in terms of 15-min means for hurricane Wilma (Florida Coastal Monitoring 2007). Clearly, more than one 15-min period has to be considered for the accumulation of the exceedance probability of the design wind load.

2 Roughness around the meteorological station Hamburg Fuhlsbu¨ttel, radius 3 km Basically, the observed hourly wind speeds have to be understood simply as a measure of the velocity of moving air. A widely accepted model for the relative frequency of hourly mean wind speeds is given with the Weibull distribution. Its probability density and corresponding cumulative probability distribution are given as follows:  kÀ1  k ! k x x fðxÞ ¼ Á Á exp À x0 x0 x0  k ! 4) with k: shape parameter; x0: scale parameter If a local wind climate is characterized by considerable periods of calms, the above approach has to be applied to the non-zero hourly means.
