The simplified procedure is for building with simple diaphragm, roof slope less than 10 degree, mean roof height less than 30 ft, regular shape rigid building, no expansion joints, flat terrain and not subjected to special wind condition.

Hurricane prone regions with. These changes affect how you determine wind-uplift resistance. Wind is to be evaluated in the worst case of the two degree sectors either side of the wind direction. Buildings in standard, essential and substantial hazard categories located in wind-borne debris regions shall be protected with impact-resistant covering or glazings windows at 1 below 60 ft 2 at 30 ft from roof with aggregate surface within ft of the building.

Azce uses a single basic wind speed map. ASCE uses four basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies.


Interpolation between exposure categories is permitted by rational analysis. The basic wind speed is basic on statistical data collected from airport across U.

For each building risk category, an importance factor and wind-load factor are ascee applied to determine ultimate wind loads. In doing so, applying a load reduction factor of 0.

Explanation of ASCE 7-05, ASCE 7-10, and ASCE 7-16

An adjustment factor is provided for different exposure and height. Flat, unobstructed areas and water surfaces outside hurricane-prone regions including smooth mud flats, salt flats, and unbroken ice. This also allow the building to be designed in different exposure in different direction. Apply to all buildings and other structures.

ASCE 7-05 & 02 Wind load calculation:

Examples of partially enclosed buildings: Surface roughness D in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings.

Each procedure has two categories: Minimum design wind load: The wind speeds represent year return period.

The wind pressure is the wind pressure in the table multiplied by adjustment factor and important factor. Comparing the edition to the edition, there was a significant change to the load factors used with wind and basic wind speed maps. Basic wind speed in U.

Designers are given the option to use either ASD or strength design. Open terrain with scattered obstructions having heights generally less than 30 ft. Analytical procedure Apply to all buildings and other structures. Dead and live loads Wind load calculation Seismic load calculation Ice load calculation Snow load calculation.


Important fac tor, I for wind load. Expose D shall extend inland from the shoreline for a distance of ft or 10 times the height of the building.

Generally, roof systems are designed using ASD. Loads and appropriate load combinations load factorswhich were developed to be used together, are set forth in two design methods: To determine wind-uplift resistance loads for a roof system, you would multiple the ultimate wind loads by the ASD wind-load factor 1.

A distinction was made surface roughness categories and exposure categories.

ASCE Wind load calculation

Method of wind calculation: Surface roughness B in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings. A building located at edge of city or sea shore may be designed for exposure category in one direction and other exposure in other direction.

These maps provide basic wind speeds that are directly applicable for determining pressures for strength design. ASCE uses three different basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies.
