Abstract: Extreme wind quantiles are needed to calculate design values of wind load-effect on structures. These quantiles are estimated by conducting frequency analysis of the available wind data. Usually, at the site of interest either wind speed data are not available or are of very short record length. Wind quantile estimates have large standard errors if estimated from limited data. In the present work, the concept of focused pooling of information for the site of interest is proposed. The use of this approach has been demonstrated by developing wind quantile estimates for 26 wind stations of Ontario, Canada. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
