RE: Wind Load on Wood Fence

Ralph,

 

Its not really that bad is it? Admittedly ASCE7-05 does seem more cumbersome to get at a pressure coefficient than AS1170.2, and mixes up dynamic and static, where as AS1170.2 has clear and distinct sections for static and dynamic.

 

I would say the gust effect factor has its default value, and not relevant to static analysis of simple structures. But maybe ASCE7-5 does require it. Seems unreasonable though for simple structure.
