RE: Wind loading

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ASCE 7 is not meant to be a "catch all" for every conceivable situation.

In your case, you have to consider:

1. A rational approach, synthesizing said approach from the ASCE 7
information on wind on latticework, etc.

2. A more rigorous approach, such as wind tunnel testing (assuming your
project is "expensive" enough to justify it--most are not).
