Surface roughness B in upwind direction for ft or 10 times the height of the buildings. Wind is to be evaluated in the worst case of the two degree sectors either side of the wind direction. Open terrain with scattered obstructions having heights generally less than 30 ft.

ASCE uses a single basic wind speed map. Important fac tor, I for wind load. These maps provide basic wind speeds that are directly applicable for determining pressures for strength design. An adjustment factor ascr provided for different exposure and height. These changes affect how you determine wind-uplift resistance.

Hurricane prone regions with. The basic wind speed is basic on statistical data collected from airport across U. A distinction was made surface roughness categories and exposure categories. The editor made reasonable effort of editing. The wind pressure is the wind pressure in the table multiplied 07–05 adjustment factor and important factor.

Urban and suburban areas, wooded areas or other terrain with numerous closely spaced obstructions having the size of single-family dwellings or larger. Minimum design wind load: Designers are 07-5 the option to use either ASD or strength design.


The analytical procedure is for all buildings and non-building structures. 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 provides minimum load requirements for the design of buildings. For buildings with mean roof height 30 ft or less, the upwind distance is reduced to ft.

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. For asxe edition, the ASD wind-load factor is 1.

Interpolation between exposure categories is permitted by rational analysis. Nevertheless, the editor does not warrant, and assume no liability for accuracy and completeness of its content.

One side of the building has door opening that larger than other 3 sides.

ASCE 7 & SEI Standards | ASCE

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. Basic wind speed in U. Method 07-0 wind calculation: Exposure A is deleted. Building enclosure and openings and protection: 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.

Dead and live loads Wind load calculation Seismic load calculation Ice load calculation Snow load calculation. Flat, unobstructed areas and water surfaces outside hurricane-prone regions including smooth mud flats, salt flats, and unbroken ice.

ASCE uses four basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies. ASCE provides two methods for wind load calculation: The wind speeds represent year return period.


This also allow the building to be designed in 07–05 exposure in different direction.

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

Comparing the edition to the edition, there was a significant change to the load factors used with wind and basic wind speed maps. In doing so, applying a load reduction factor of 0. The wind speeds correspond to 3-second gust speeds at 33 ft above ground for exposure C category.

Consequently, the strength design wind-load factor was changed to 1.

Expose D shall extend inland from the shoreline for a distance of ft or 10 times the asve of the building. The content of this website was obtained and edited from various resources.

Each procedure has two categories: For each building risk category, an importance factor and wind-load factor are then applied to determine ultimate wind loads.

ASCE uses three different basic wind speed maps for different categories of building occupancies.

The simplified procedure is for building with simple diaphragm, roof slope less than 10 degree, mean roof height less than 30 ft, regular 07-5 rigid building, no expansion joints, flat terrain and not subjected to special wind condition. Building 60 ft or lower and height does not exceed least horizontal dimension.

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. Examples of partially enclosed buildings:
