This helpful guide focuses on the wind load provisions of Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI 7-10, that affect the planning, design, and construction of buildings for residential and commercial purposes. The 2010 revision of the Standard significantly reorganized the wind load provisions, expanding them from one to six chapters. Simplified methods of performing calculations for common situations were added to the Standard, and guidelines for components and cladding were gathered in a single chapter. Wind Loads provides users with tools and insight to apply the Standard in everyday practice. This revised and updated guide introduces readers to the relevant sections of the Standard and provides a comprehensive overview of the design procedures and the new wind speed maps. Ten chapters with 14 worked examples demonstrate the appropriate use of analytical and simplified procedures for calculating wind loads for a variety of common structure types. The guide also answers more than 30 frequently asked questions, grouped by topic. This book is an essential reference for practicing structural engineers, as it offers the most authoritative and in-depth interpretation of the wind loads section of Standard ASCE/SEI 7-10.

Significant Changes to the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-10: An Illustrated Guide focuses on the updates to the wind load requirements set forth in the latest edition of the Standard for minimum design loads. The wind load provisions have undergone the most extensive revision since the 1995 edition the Standard. Mirroring the organization of the wind chapters in ASCE 7-10, this handy reference briefly summarizes each change to the wind provisions that might affect actual practice or enforcement and immediately follows up with the precise wording of the change. The impact of each update is explained in clear, straightforward language accompanied by diagrams, examples, and color photographs and illustrations to enrich the reader's understanding. Significant Changes to the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-10: An Illustrated Guide translates the changes to the wind load provisions of Standard ASCE/SEI 7-10 into a form readily accessible by structural engineers, architects, contractors, building officials and inspectors, and allied professionals.

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.

The objective of the Guide to the Use of the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-95 is to provide guidance in the use of the wind load provisions set forth in ASCE Standard 7-95. The Guide is a completely new document because the wind load provisions underwent major changes from the previous ASCE Standard 7-88 (or ASCE 7-93). The Guide contains six example problems, worked out in detail, which can provide direction to practicing professionals in assessing wind loads on a variety of buildings and other structures. Errata and Clarifications from the previous guide is also included.

Seismic Loads: Guide to the Seismic Load Provisions of ASCE 7-05 provides authoritative explanations of the seismic provisions offered in Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-05. With clear, concise language Seismic Loads illustrates the key concepts and guides structural engineers in applying the most current thinking in this rapidly changing discipline into the design of new structures. The book offers more than 20 detailed examples that analyze specific provisions of the standard and demonstrate the application of the provision in evaluating the seismic loading requirements for building structures. The examples guide structural engineers through the process of assessing conditions such as: identifying occupancy, importance, and seismic design categories, selecting a structural system, and analyzing the seismic requirements. Topics include building irregularities, structural analysis, system forces, and load factors, as well as drift and P-delta effects. Seismic Loads includes a frequently asked questions section and three appendixes with supplementary material. This book is an essential supplement to ASCE 7-05 for all engineers, architects, and construction professionals who work on projects in seismically active locations. About the author: Finley A. Charney, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, is an associate professor of civil engineering at Virginia Polytechnic and State University and president of Advanced Structural Concepts in Blacksburg, Virginia.
