I don't know about ASCE-98, but I do know that
we designed a tank footing downtown a few months ago
and used 80 mph as the base speed under BOCA.
Hope this helps.

Can anyone give me the base wind speed for Richmond,
Virginia area based on ASCE 7-98? I'm currently
traveling and away from my reference library! Thanks
Rob Valorio, P.E.
