ASCE wind wisdom sought

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm confused about the K_1, K_2, and K_3 factors for
determining the topographic factor, K_zt, per ASCE
7-98, Figure 6-2.  Eqns are given on the second page
of the Fig., but the first page of the Fig. has
"multipliers"???  Which to determine and which to use?
