Rh = — --L(1 - e-2hh ) for hh > 0 hh 2hl Rh = 1 for hh = 0

B = building width perpendicular to wind h = building height

Q = background response, a term used in random vibration theory.

Rl is a parameter required for calculating R2

ß = damping ratio, percent of critical gQ = peak factor for background response gR = peak factor for resonance response G = gust factor gV = peak factor for wind response gQ = gV always taken = 3.4

% = mode exponent ln means logarithm to base e = 2.71.
