Re: National Building Code 1999 (BOCA)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ASCE 7-95 wind loads (3 second gust speed) is not being used in BOCA 99. It is still using fastest wind speed and in talking with a BOCA offical no major changes took place regarding wind load design criteria.

I am not quite familiar with Boca 1999. If some one knows abound wind
load provisions in BOCA 1999, please let me know whether significant
changes have been made from 1996 code. I would also like to know
whether ASCE 7-95 is being followed in BOCA 1999.

Thanks in advance.
