Description

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.
