1. Technical: "Rooftop Equipment Wind Load And Its Mitigation For Buildings In Hurricane Prone Regions" discusses research and testing funded by the State of Florida Division of Emergency Management in partnership with the International Hurricane Research Center - Florida International University. Very useful information..."The aim of this research is to develop mitigation techniques that will reduce the wind loading on mechanical rooftop equipment and the forces transferred to the roof supporting structure by the equipment through the use of aerodynamic retrofits such as installation of wind screens."
