The wind sub-committee of the Lateral Forces Committee of the SEA of
Washington is a very involved with the wind provisions of the code. Contact
them through John Hooper 206/292-1200. His e-mail is available from the
SEAINT link to WA - SEAW, Seattle Chapter.

Subject: Engineers involved with UBC
Is there anyone on this list who is, or who knows of someone that is,
involved with the development of UBC, particularly on wind loads? Between
ASCE 7 and UBC, I find a major difference in wind pressure on side walls of
building. In fact, UBC does not seem to address it at all. I would like to
know the reason for the difference.
