Re: Wind speeds in Mexico

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

As Thomas Hunt points out there are two different regulations in Mexico
one is only for Mexico City and the other one is an Industrial
Regulation made
by the IIE (Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas) for the CFE. And it
intented to apply for the whole country. 

>      They have a Federal code (Reglamento de Construcciones para el

>      District of Columbia).

I work for the Civil Engineering Department of the IIE, But I don´t know
Which are the differencies with respect to UBC or ASCE. However,
my boss was in charge of the Wind Design Section of the CFE,
and I am sure he can give you the Answers you are looking for as well as
pointing out any difference between the CFE-Manual Design Methodology
American Regulations.

Here are some ways to contact him:
