RE: ASCE / IBC wind

in general i agree with you...
if a structure truly is simple, it qualifies for the "simplified procedure" of asce 6.4 for both mwfrs and c&c.  that is a lot less painful than "analytical procedure" of asce 6.5.

Is there a simplified method of wind design for ASCE 7 and IBC?


The UBC is (was) so much simpler to utilize without any loss of conservatism for most projects.  We should be able to develop a simple method of wind analysis without all the gymnastics for simple structures.
