Title: 1960s wind load
If that can be of any help...  According to the 1964 UBC, the Houston area structures were to be designed for "allowable resultant wind pressures" of 40 PSF (height 30 to 49 feet), and 50 PSF (height to 50 to 99 feet), with several other applicable factors.
However, I would agree with the previous post, and analyze the structure to the current code.

Can anybody give some reference or guidelines about wind speed, ASCE guidelines used for
Houston area (refinery structure) in 1960's.      Need to analyse a structure built in 1960s.
