ASCE/SEI Prestandard for Performance-Based Wind Design AVAILABLE NOW!
ASCE/SEI Prestandard for Performance-Based Wind Design
is now available as a free download.
presents a recommended alternative to the prescriptive procedures for wind design of buildings contained in the nationally adopted standard Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7) and the International Building Code (IBC).
provides a performance-based approach for wind that is compatible with currently used performance-based approached for seismic design. Properly implemented, the
results in buildings that are capable of achieving the wind performance objectives specified by ASCE 7, and in many instances, superior performance to such objectives.
SEI received a Research Grant from the
