RE: Another ASCE 7-05 Wind Load Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi Bill;
	I had understood from our seminars that the definition of Exposure B
had been somewhat expanded but also better defined to make it easier to
understand.  Most of our projects are in rolling hills where I tend to use
Exposure B which most of our county jurisdictions allow.  Of course, when
you're on TOP of a hill those nasty topography variables kick in so Exposure
B versus C becomes more of a moot point.
	Take care,

Is Exposure B the same as Exposure B in the 1997 UBC? It sounds like
Exposure B in ASCE 7 is applicable in typical suburban/urban areas. OTOH,
I?ve never been able to get UBC Exposure B to fly here without rigorous hoop
