- Wind data measured on a 444-m tower located near Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, were used to investigate the structure of wind and turbulence in the height interval from 150 m to 1 km. The structure of wind and turbulence in the layer not encompassed by the existing design criteria was researched and ways for unifying the ground and inflight criteria were investigated. Steady state vertical wind profiles, directional wind component envelopes, wind shear, wind direction change, gust factor, and turbulence spectra are encompassed. A method is proposed for the specification of steady state wind profiles and shear envelopes for use in the region between 150 m and 1 km without altering in any way the existing design criteria. The data analyzed did not indicate a need for changing the existing criteria in regards to wind direction change, gust factor, or spectra of turbulence.
