According to the ASCE 7-95 the 3 second gust speed is 110 to 120 mph According to the New York State uniform fire prevention and building code: 803.4 WIND LOADS. Minimum wind loads shall be in conformity with Table V-803 and Table VI-803, and shall be applied normal to the surface. These loads are based on a design wind velocity of 75 miles per hour at a height of 30 feet above grade level. Minimum wind loads on signs shall be in conformity with reference standard RS-28. [AMENDED EFFECTIVE JULY 26, 1995] Where RS-28 is the ASCE 7-88 which was based on the fastest mile wind and computed a bit differently. Further, New York City also has its own building code which may contain other provisions. ---------- From: BVeit[SMTP:BVeit(--nospam--at)aol.com] Sent: Tuesday, May 05, 1998 3:36 PM To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Subject: Windspeed in Brooklyn Can anyone out there tell me the design windspeed in Brooklyn?
