RE: Practical Example of wind design for multi-story residential wood framed analysis needed for 2006 IBC and ASCE 7-05

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Dennis and Bill:
 
In my opinion the Wind Analysis based on CBC 2007 (ASCE 7-05) for low and mid rise structures are relatively easy but a lot more time consuming than the current CBC 2001.
However based on the information that I've got form Howard Smith & Bill Staelhlin down at the DSA, about two weeks ago, a new simplified Wind Design method will be available by early 2008 for California structural engineers.

 For the first time in history, the seismic design is so much easier to understand than the wind loads but I suppose this makes sense in the coastal regions subject to high wind loads.

(N.B. Dennis, go here. The wind load provisions of 7-05 are not very different at all from those of 7-02 - I know, I asked Dr. Mehta if he was going to write a guide for 7-05 and he told me "there's no need, not enough changed.")

I have a lot of information related to the calculations ....
