This revised guide addresses new developments in This revised guide addresses new developments in the wind load provisions of ASCE , including analytical procedures, simplified procedures, terrain exposures, and internal pressures. In order to clearly identify the scope and limitations of the Standard, Guide to the Use of Wind Load Provisions of ASCE provides a brief review of the background material that forms the basis for the Standard's provisions. It includes a discussion of the general format of an analytical procedure used to determine wind loads and the various wind load parameters involved in this determination, such as velocity pressure, gust response factor, and pressure coefficients.

View all product details. Language: English. Full Description The Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE , gives current requirements for dead, live, soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, ice, and earthquake loads, and their combinations, that are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents.
Also included is a detailed commentary on the standard, containing explanatory and supplementary information designed to assist building code committees and regulatory authorities. Architects, structural engineers, and those engaged in preparing and administering local building codes will find the structural load requirements provided by this standard essential. The document uses both Systeme International SI units and customary units.
The PDF and CD ROM versions provide the complete text of the standard including all figures, tables, and equations with all of the advantages of an electronic format: powerful text searches; download capability; multi-level bookmarks; and easy navigation.
ASCE has some changes. Among those changes, the ones related with wind load, live load and loading combination can be summarized as follow;. Wind Loads: 1. Clarified and expand the application of Method 1 — Simplified Method 2. Excluded torsionally sensitive buildings from using Method 1. Modified the pressures for parapets and clarify their application for low-slope roofs 4.
