4 Topographic Effects Topography has a considerable effect on mean and gust wind speeds, mostly notably by accelerating flow over the crests of hills. Topography can also cause shelter effects, such as in valleys and in the lees of hills or ridges. Escarpments, cliffs, ridges, hills and valleys are common topographical features, among which escarpments, ridges and hills are usually considered in wind engineering applications. Considerable research has been undertaken for boundary layer flows over moderate topography.

2 Estimation of the Design Wind Speed 43 Fig. 87 m/s Basically, for all non-zero values of the curvature parameter τ, there exists a corresponding probability paper for the GEV. This approach will lead for each chosen τ-value to a solution in terms of the two characteristic parameters. The different solutions for each τ-value can be compared based on the deviations in a reference paper. It is reasonable to choose as reference the Gumbel probability paper. Finally, the best fit is obtained as the solution leading to the smallest sum of the squared deviations in the reference paper.

The basic advantage of this approach lies in its simplicity. All statistical information is already provided with reference to a single year. The only problem which might occur is obtained for a storm blowing at the turn of the year. Without additional control, this event is counted twice. The problem can be avoided by introducing an appropriate meteorological year which starts already outside the storm season. 5 shows two typical examples of the seasonal distribution of storms induced by strong frontal depressions.
