Hi All,

I am designing my next EME array and had some question about calculating
The array will be primarily round tubing so I am applying a .66 correction
factor to
show the round tubing offering less wind resistance then a flat surface. The
problem I come
up with when calculating horizontal tubing is what to do about orientation
to the wind?
Obviously the windload will change depending on wind direction. What is the
fudge factor here?
