Learning Outcomes

You will learn how to apply the wind load provisions in ASCE 7-10 to properly determine wind design pressures for building components and cladding. The material has been developed in a way that assumes some experience with wind design issues and methodology. The newly revised sections in ASCE 7-10 are referenced as strength design issues are important in component design.

Webinar Benefits

  • Gain an understanding of how to apply current wind design methodologies to component and cladding design issues
  • Gain an understanding of the many wind design variations there can be related to components
  • Learn what the significant changes are in the ASCE 7-10 wind provisions that affect components and cladding

Intended Audience

The level of instruction is appropriate for engineers with some knowledge of the wind provisions of ASCE 7-10 and how to apply those provisions to design situations. The primary audience is structural engineers who have some experience at performing designs for buildings and other structures or architects who specify component and cladding systems.

Purpose and Background

This webinar provides technical information important to wind engineering designers in the use of the wind load provisions of ASCE 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures for determining pressures for components and cladding.

The concept of wind pressures for building components has been part of the ASCE 7 standard for a number of years, but the changes to the wind load provisions in ASCE 7-10 provide some new methods that could be used by the practitioner for components and cladding design and new wind speed maps change the design wind speed for all structure categories.
