Abstract: Although the gross domestic product (GDP) of the Philippines has been consistently increasing, it is still considered as a developing country. Philippines has also consistently suffered wind damage from tropical cycles. With the impending consequences that climate change brings, about which is theorised to cause tropical cyclones to be more unforeseen, severe and common, it is important to have an accurate wind damage estimates to help with consequences of future tropical cyclone events. By using historical data from tropical cyclones that have hit the Philippines, assessment calibration of existing wind damage functions will be used to benchmark the loss. With better assessment, such functions can be used to predict wind damage for future tropical cyclone events and aid the authorities to provide guidelines involving better construction for structures. This can in turn reduce wind damage in structures, reduce fatality rates and lessen economic losses.
