Subject: wind loads for small windows
I'm an EE, building a house in a hurricane zone; and I'm trying to figure out how to calculate wind pressure/loads on small windows from 3 ft2 to 16 ft2. I have two formulas given me by associates (an ME and a CE) which yield values within 20% of each other; however, the values determined by Mexican code are about half these numbers. After reading Scott Maxwell's Jan., 03 message, I'm guessing the mexican code calculation is the average wind loading for a wall, and that I should use the C&C calculation for small windows. Unfortunately, as a lowly electrical type, I haven't a clue as to what "C&C" is. Could someone please enlighten me? Thank you.
