  • Kruger, AC; Goliger, Adam M; Retief, JV; Sekele, SS (2010-08)
    The South African Weather Service, with the support of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the University of Stellenbosch, is in the process of updating the extreme surface wind statistics for ...
  • Goliger, Adam M; Retief, RV (Elsevier Science BV, 2002-11)
    This paper summarises the initial stage of development of a wind damage/disaster risk model for South Africa. The aim is to identify the generic zones of various types of strong wind events. The extent of these zones will ...
  • Goliger, Adam M; Milford, RV (Elsevier Science BV, 1998)
    The objective of the present study was to re-visit and up-date data on tornado occurrences throughout the world. This was carried out by accessing the relevant literature, analysing, re-analysing and comparing the data on ...
  • Goliger, Adam M; Retief, JV (Elsevier Science B.V, 2007-10)
    This paper presents a review of the types and magnitude of strong and extreme wind events that develop over the southern portion of the African continent. The origin of such events is given, together with selected statistics ...
  • Goliger, Adam M (Elsevier Science B.V, 2007-10)
    This paper is a review of the development process of a new set of wind loading stipulations to be included in the proposed South African design standard for buildings and structures. A summary of activities that have taken ...
  • Kruger, AC; Goliger, Adam M; Retief, JV; Sekele, S (Techno Press, 2010-01)
    In this paper South Africa is divided into strong wind climate zones, which indicate the main sources of annual maximum wind gusts. By the analysis of wind gust data of 94 weather stations, which had continuous climate ...
  • Kruger, AC; Retief, JV; Goliger, Adam M (South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE), 2013-08)
    Although wind is the most important environmental action on buildings and structures in South Africa, the last comprehensive strong wind analysis was conducted in 1985. The current wind loading code is still based on the ...
  • Milford, RV; Goliger, Adam M (Elsevier Science BV, 1997-11)
    A tornado risk model for transmission line design has been developed. The risk model is based on the McDonald model for point structures and has been developed such that it can be simplified for applications in codes of ...
  • Kruger, AC; Retief, JV; Goliger, Adam M (2011-07)
    This paper provides an outline of the process followed to compile the information that should serve as input for the determination of the characteristic wind speed across the country. The main aspects considered here are ...
  • Cwik, M; Gizejowski, MA; Goliger, Adam M; Sitek, M (Warsaw Military University of Technology, 2012-12)
    This paper presents an overview of wind-tunnel tests of one of the highest buildings in Poland - Warsaw Trade Tower. The aim of the tests was to evaluate the extreme values of wind pressure over building facade. In the ...
  • Goliger, Adam M (South African Institution of Civil Engineering, 2010-04)
    In recent years large-scale global sports events and related ventures have received significant international media coverage and socio-economic support from the hosting countries. This is especially evident in respect of ...
