The 10psf is a separate load case. Look to the ‘Guide to the Use of the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7’.
This guide shows the application of all the provisions, including the 10psf min. as a separate load case.
It is a very good reference. The version I have is for 7-02, not sure if they have an updated version yet.
I raised the 10 psf min wind load before. I believe it applies as a separate load case (applied full height to determine the base shear), otherwise Figuer 6-2 (page 38 & 39) would (should?) not list tabled values of less than 10 psf.
Who could I contact at ASCE (CBC or IBC) for the correct interpretation and/or an "errata"?
