Abstract

Analysis of extreme wind speed is an essential task in many fields of environmental and engineering risk analysis. A yearly maximum wind speed data was selected from a set of 34 years daily maximum wind speed data given by the Malaysia Meteorology Department. The data were taken from 1975 to 2008 and were analyzed using extreme value type I distribution namely Gumbel distribution. The analysis was carried out using graphical method and then the specific return period was determined. Simple coloured maps were applied to represent the result based on 10, 30, 50, and 100 years return period. The mapping shows at long range period of time, there is a high risk an extreme wind speed will happen at any stations especially at Ipoh station that scores the highest.
