ABSTRACT According to the actual measurement data, probability models of horizontal wind load were obtained based on wind velocity statistic and power spectral density function of fluctuating wind velocity through stochastic sampling and using spectrum analysis method. Through the comparison of two models, probability models of horizontal wind load based on probability models of fluctuating wind velocity were obtained by revising the mean and variance of fluctuating wind velocity. Results show that the variance takes lower value when the power spectral density function of fluctuating wind velocity is used to obtain the probability model of horizontal wind load. The quadratic term of fluctuating wind velocity takes a small contribution value in total wind load with almost no contribution to the model of horizontal wind load. It is convenient for practical engineering to obtain the models of horizontal wind load by using probability models of fluctuating wind velocity.
