Abstract

The Italian National Research Council is a Governmental Institution whose mission is to promote, carry out and disseminate research activities in the main areas of knowledge and its applications for the scientific, technological, economic and social development of the Country. In 2002 CNR started promoting the drafting of documents in areas of Engineering where recent achievements have made the existing Codes obsolete, or where no Codes exist at all. In this framework, in 2005 a Panel was established with the goal of drafting a completely new set of Guidelines for the evaluation of actions and effects of wind on structures. In January 2008 a first draft of the document was presented and public discussion was opened, aimed at receiving any comment or suggestion before release of its final version. Finally, in spring 2009, the modified version of the document was issued with the name CNR-DT 207/2008 “Guidelines on Actions and Effects of Wind on Structures”. The Italian version is available for download from CNR web-site www.cnr.it, while the English version will soon be available. In this paper the main aspects of the Guidelines are presented, together with the new approach adopted.
