I'm with you Jeff. I have a similar little project right now and a glance at 6.5.14 and its interminable references to references, etc., make me think it'll take as week and 50 pages and a Ph.D. just to get the pressure that used to be simply 25 psf.

I was hoping there might be a simplified procedure. The the 97 UBC allowed 75% of the normal force method for fences less than 12'.

Seems the right approach to me. We use pressures on free standing walls for fences. If open then use the drag force coefficients for open framing ( AS1170.2). When using ASCE7-05 looks like need to go elsewhere for open framing drag forces.
