Re: National Building Code 1999 (BOCA)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The wind load provisions in 1999 BOCA Code and 1996 BOCA Code are essentially 
the same. Both editions allow the wind load to be determined either as per 
the Code provisions, which are still based on fastest mile wind speed, or as 
per ASCE 7-95, which is the 3 sec gust speed. However, other major 
differences besides the definition of wind speed exist between the Code 
provisions and ASCE 7-95. The BOCA Code provisions are close to ASCE 7-93.
