The UBC wind provisions are a simplified version developed from the ANSI
A58.1-1972 (and 1982) wind provisions. The ANSI provisions are the wind
provisions found in the ASCE 7 "Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other
Structures" codes prior to the 7-95 revisions. There were some other minor
changes in ASCE 7-88, but prior to this any version of the ASCE 7 code you
can find will be equivalent to what you are looking for.
