MBMA and Wind Load Specification

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would recommend the following two references :

Gregory L.F. Chiu and Dale C. Perry, "Low-Rise Building Wind Load
Provisions-Where Are We and Where Do We Need to Go?," Engineering Journal,
American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc., Fourth Quarter, 1997,
Volume 34, No.4, 135-150.

Structural Engineers Association of Hawaii, "Pre-Engineered Metal Building
Design Guidelines for Structural Engineers," SEAOH, P.O. Box 3348,
Honolulu, Hawaii  96801, January , 1995.  (Mail order only)

	"These guidelines have been developed to assist the Structural Engineer of
Record in the design and construction of pre-engineered metal building
systems."  (However, note the vintage of this publication is circa 1991
UBC, 1986 MBMA, and 1988 	ASCE-7.  It is still a good reference for
structural engineers seeking to specify criteria for these systems.)
