10 Year Wind Conversion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am looking for the conversion factor of changing the 50 year wind load
to the 10 year wind load.  ASCE 7-95 has a conversion factor in the
Commentary for their wind loads.  My problem is I am using ASCE 7-93
which is a different wind load.  My wind speed is 80 MPH (fastest mile). 
ASCE 7-95 is based on 3 sec. gust.  Can anybody give me the conversion
factor of 50 year wind to 10 year wind using fastest mile criteria?
