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 7 & SEI Standards | ASCE

Examples of partially enclosed buildings: 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 with aggregate surface within ft of the building.

The analytical procedure is for all buildings and non-building structures. Building 60 asxe or lower and height does not exceed least horizontal dimension. Dead and live loads Wind load calculation Seismic load calculation Ice load calculation Snow load calculation.

An adjustment factor is provided for different exposure and height. Generally, roof systems are designed using ASD. The wind speeds represent year return period.

Apply to all buildings and other structures. Designers are given the option to use either ASD or strength design.

Analytical procedure Apply to all buildings and other structures. The content of this website was obtained and edited from various resources. In doing so, applying a load reduction factor of 0. Method of wind calculation: Each procedure has two categories: Basic wind speed in U.


ASCE uses three different basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies. The wind speeds correspond to 3-second gust speeds at 33 ft above ground for exposure C category. Minimum design wind load: Nevertheless, the editor does not warrant, and assume no liability for accuracy and completeness of its content. Building enclosure and openings and protection: 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.

For this edition, the ASD wind-load factor is 1. Surface roughness B in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings. Important fac tor, I for wind load.

Surface roughness D in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings. For buildings with mean roof height 30 ft or less, the upwind distance is reduced to ft. ASCE ascw a single basic wind speed map. ASCE uses four basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies. Consequently, the strength design wind-load factor was changed to 1.

ASCE 7-05 & 02 Wind load calculation:

Flat, unobstructed areas and water surfaces outside hurricane-prone regions including smooth mud flats, salt flats, and unbroken ice. Urban and suburban areas, wooded areas or other terrain with ssce closely spaced obstructions having the size of single-family dwellings or larger.

Hurricane prone regions with. For each building risk category, an importance factor and wind-load factor are then applied to determine ultimate wind loads. These changes affect how you determine wind-uplift resistance.


Expose D shall extend inland from the shoreline for a distance of ft or 10 times the height of sace building. One side of the building has door opening that larger than other 3 sides. A distinction was made surface roughness categories and exposure categories.

Wind is to be evaluated in the worst case of the two degree sectors either side of the wind direction.

The basic wind speed is basic on statistical data collected from airport across U. This also allow the building to be designed in different exposure in different direction. 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.


ASCE Wind load calculation

Comparing the edition to the edition, there was a significant change to the load factors used with wind and basic wind speed maps. The wind pressure is the wind pressure in the table multiplied by adjustment factor and important factor. ASCE 7 provides minimum load requirements for the design of buildings. These maps provide basic wind speeds that are directly applicable for determining pressures for strength design.

ASCE provides axce methods for wind load calculation: Interpolation between exposure categories is permitted by rational analysis.

Exposure A is deleted.
