    Wind Pressure
    You can get a general idea of the pressure on a 1-foot–by–1-foot section of a structure by using the following formula: wind pressure per square foot = 0.00256 x the square of the wind speed. For example, a 40-mile-per-hour (mph) wind speed creates a pressure of (0.00256 x (40)^2) = 4.096 pounds per square foot (psf). According to this formula, a structure meant to withstand 100-mph winds must be built to resist a wind pressure of 25.6 psf.
