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.

Basic wind speed in U. Each procedure has two categories: In doing so, applying a load reduction factor of 0. Method of wind calculation: These changes affect how you determine wind-uplift resistance. Examples of partially enclosed buildings: Expose D shall extend inland from the shoreline for a distance of ft or 10 times the height of the building.

To determine wind-uplift resistance loads for a roof system, you would multiple the ultimate wind loads by the ASD wind-load factor 1. ASCE uses four basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies. Flat, unobstructed areas and water surfaces outside hurricane-prone regions including smooth mud flats, salt flats, and unbroken ice.

The analytical procedure is for all buildings and non-building structures. Surface roughness B in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings.

Loads and appropriate load combinations load factorswhich were developed to be used together, are set forth in two design methods: Generally, roof systems are designed using ASD. Exposure A is deleted. Interpolation between exposure categories is permitted by rational analysis. One side of the building has door opening that larger than other 3 sides. Comparing the edition to the edition, there was a significant change to the load factors used with wind and basic wind speed maps.


Dead and live loads Wind load calculation Seismic load calculation Ice load calculation Snow load calculation.

Minimum design wind load: A distinction was made surface roughness categories and exposure categories. This also xsce the building to be designed in different exposure in different direction.

ASCE 7 & SEI Standards

Surface roughness D in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings. Analytical procedure Apply to all buildings and other structures. Wind is to be evaluated in the worst case of the two degree sectors either side of the wind direction. ASCE uses a single basic wind speed map. These maps provide basic wind speeds that are directly applicable for determining pressures for strength design.

Important fac tor, I for wind load.

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

Building enclosure and openings and protection: 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 asde aggregate surface within ft of the building.

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.

The wind speeds represent year return period. Designers are given the option to use either ASD or strength design.

An adjustment factor is provided for different exposure and height. The content of this website was obtained and edited from various 0-05. The wind speeds correspond to 3-second gust speeds at 33 ft above ground for exposure C category. ASCE provides two methods for wind load calculation: ASCE uses three different basic wind speed maps for different categories asfe building occupancies.


Nevertheless, the editor does not warrant, and assume no liability for accuracy and completeness of its content. For this edition, the ASD wind-load factor is 1. The wind pressure is the ase pressure in the table multiplied by adjustment factor and important factor. Building 60 ft or lower and height does not exceed least horizontal dimension.

The basic wind speed is basic on statistical data collected from airport across U. For buildings with mean roof height 30 ft or less, the upwind distance is reduced to ft. Apply to all buildings and other structures.

The editor made reasonable effort of editing. Hurricane prone regions with. Urban and suburban areas, wooded areas or other terrain with numerous closely spaced obstructions having the size of single-family dwellings or larger.

ASCE Wind load calculation

ASCE 7 provides minimum load requirements for the design of buildings. Consequently, the strength design wind-load factor was changed to 1.

Open terrain with scattered obstructions having heights generally less than 30 ft. For each building risk category, an importance factor and wind-load factor aasce then applied to determine ultimate wind loads.
