Wind Loading Risk Assessment

A simple spreadsheet which allows varying life expectancy and calculates the mean return period (R) for the regional wind speed. It is based on formula in Wind Loading of Structures by John Holmes.

It also attempts to map the calculated mean return period to the nearest building code of Australia (BCA) importance level, and return the associated mean return period for such. This part is limited to non-cyclonic regions: A and B.
