model-derived wind gusts determined by each method are then compared to wind reports from the Storm Prediction CenterÃ¢ s severe storm reports archive and reports from observing stations. Model-derived wind gusts are then compared to the observed wind gusts for varying times of day and observed wind gust ranges. Wind gust frequency plots are examined for each wind method to determine accuracy and to characterize any patterns. The T1 method was the most accurate overall for this study, but was shown to be less sensitive to varying atmospheric conditions. The T2 method was the least accurate of the three methods during all situations. The WINDEX method performed well in most situations and was nearly as accurate as the T1 method, while WINDEX also proved to be the most sensitive of the three to varying mesoscale conditions.

Evaluation of the strain energy density method of notch stress concentration calculations in the plastic range Stephenson, Grant B. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-03);Accurate stress and strain calculations at a notch usually require a non-linear finite element analysis when local yielding has occurred. The strain energy density hypothesis is a method to predict these stress and strain ...
