Abstract

In many field of environmental and engineering risk analysis the investigation and analysis of extreme wind speed is an essential task. The results will allow the researcher to predict possible future outcomes. In this research, a yearly maximum wind speed data was selected from a set of 34 years daily maximum wind speed data that was given by the Malaysia Meteorological Department. The data were taken from 1975 to 2008 and were analyzed using extreme value type I, Gumbel distribution. The analysis was carried out and then the specific return period was determined. The contour maps were applied to represent the result based on 5, 10, 15, 30, 50, and 100 years return period. For the long range period of time, the mapping shows clearly that there is a high risk of an extreme wind speed occurring in at all of the stations.
