The basic wind speed is basic on statistical data collected from airport across U. Comparing the edition to the edition, there was a significant change to the load factors used with wind and basic wind speed maps. The analytical procedure is for all buildings and non-building structures. The editor made reasonable effort of editing.
For this edition, the ASD wind-load factor is 1. Generally, roof systems are designed using ASD. Open terrain with scattered obstructions having heights generally less than 30 ft.
For buildings with mean roof height 30 ft or less, the upwind distance is reduced to ft. The wind pressure is the wind pressure in the table multiplied by adjustment factor and important factor. This also allow the building to be designed in different exposure in different direction.
ASCE 7 & SEI Standards
Urban and suburban areas, wooded areas or other terrain with numerous closely spaced obstructions having the size of single-family dwellings or larger. Basic wind speed in U. One side of the building has door opening that larger than other 3 sides.
ASCE 7 provides minimum load requirements for the design of buildings. ASCE uses three different basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies. Nevertheless, the editor does not warrant, and assume no liability for accuracy and completeness 0705 its content.
ASCE uses a single basic wind speed map. These maps provide basic wind speeds that are directly applicable for determining pressures for strength design. Analytical procedure Apply to all buildings and other ascee. Building enclosure and openings and protection: Loads and appropriate load combinations load factorswhich were developed to be used together, are set forth in two design methods: In doing so, applying a load reduction factor of 0. Flat, unobstructed areas and water surfaces outside hurricane-prone regions including smooth mud flats, salt flats, 07-0 unbroken ice.
ASCE uses four basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies. Dead and live loads Wind load calculation Seismic load calculation Ice load calculation Snow load calculation.
Consequently, the strength design wind-load factor ascd changed to 1. To determine wind-uplift resistance loads for a roof system, you would multiple the ultimate wind loads by the ASD wind-load factor 1. Designers are given the option to use either ASD or strength design. Surface roughness D in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings.
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.
Hurricane prone regions with. The content of this website was obtained and edited from various resources. Expose D shall extend inland from the shoreline for a distance of ft or 10 times the height of the building.
The wind speeds represent year return period.
Important fac tor, I for wind load. Interpolation between exposure categories is permitted by rational analysis. These changes affect how you determine wind-uplift resistance. A distinction was made surface roughness categories and exposure categories. Each procedure has two categories: Apply to all buildings and other structures.
The simplified procedure is for building with simple diaphragm, roof slope less than 10 degree, mean roof height less than 30 ft, ssce shape rigid building, no expansion joints, flat terrain and not subjected to special wind condition. Wind is to be evaluated in the worst case of the two degree sectors either side of the wind direction.
ASCE Wind load calculation
An adjustment factor is provided for different exposure and height. Method of wind calculation: Examples of partially enclosed buildings: Minimum design wind load: The wind speeds correspond to ascw gust speeds at 33 ft above ground for exposure C category. Exposure A is deleted. ASCE provides two methods for wind load calculation:
