This paper discusses the estimation of wind dynamic response of two types of structures by following classical and novel approaches. A new method for structural analysis based on wind design spectra is introduced and tested against simulated and experimental data. Design spectra are derived from the dynamic response of a group of oscillators subject to wind, using similar techniques than those used to derive design spectra for seismic engineering applications. The method is used on three chimneys of different height as well as on a regular building which has been experimentally tested in the past. The chimneys and building are also submitted to simulated wind fields to provide additional sets of results. It is observed that the spectral approach is consistent with experimental and simulated results and therefore is concluded that design spectra can cover broad range of practical applications.
