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.

This useful guide walks practicing professionals through the complicated process of assessing wind loads on a variety of buildings and other structures as set forth in Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI 7-02. This revised guide addresses new developments in the wind load provisions of ASCE 7-02, 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 7-02 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. Multiple examples using this analytical procedure to determine wind load are also included and worked out in detail. This book will assist structural engineers who design buildings and structures following the wind load provisions.

Addresses the Question Frequently Proposed to the Designer by Architects: "Can We Do This? Offering guidance on how to use code-based procedures while at the same time providing an understanding of why provisions are necessary, Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems methodically explores the structural behavior of steel, concrete, and composite members and systems. This text establishes the notion that design is a creative process, and not just an execution of framing proposals. It cultivates imaginative approaches by presenting examples specifically related to essential building codes and standards. Tying together precision and accuracy—it also bridges the gap between two design approaches—one based on initiative skill and the other based on computer skill. The book explains loads and load combinations typically used in building design, explores methods for determining design wind loads using the provisions of ASCE 7-10, and examines wind tunnel procedures. It defines conceptual seismic design, as the avoidance or minimization of problems created by the effects of seismic excitation. It introduces the concept of performance-based design (PBD). It also addresses serviceability considerations, prediction of tall building motions, damping devices, seismic isolation, blast-resistant design, and progressive collapse. The final chapters explain gravity and lateral systems for steel, concrete, and composite buildings. The Book Also Considers: Preliminary analysis and design techniques The structural rehabilitation of seismically vulnerable steel and concrete buildings Design differences between code-sponsored approaches The concept of ductility trade-off for strength Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems is a structural design guide and reference for practicing engineers and educators, as well as recent graduates entering the structural engineering profession. This text examines all major concrete, steel, and composite building systems, and uses the most up-to-date building codes.
