ASCE 7 is the US standard for identifying minimum design loads for buildings and other structures.  ASCE 7 covers many load types, of which wind is one.  The purpose of this book is to provide structural and architectural engineers with the practical state-of-the-art knowledge and tools needed for designing and retrofitting buildings for wind loads. The book will also cover wind-induced loss estimation. This new edition include a guide to the thoroughly revised, 2010 version of the ASCE 7 Standard provisions for wind loads; incorporate major advances achieved in recent years in the design of tall buildings for wind; present material on retrofitting and loss estimation; and improve the presentation of the material to increase its usefulness to structural engineers.

Key features:

  • New focus on tall buildings helps make the analysis and design guidance easier and less complex.
  • Covers the new simplified design methods of ASCE 7-10, guiding designers to clearly understand the spirit and letter of the provisions and use the design methods with confidence and ease.
  • Includes new coverage of retrofitting for wind load resistance and loss estimation from hurricane winds.
  • Thoroughly revised and updated to conform with current practice and research.
