Objective of the Guide

The objective of this guide is to provide direction in the use of wind load provisions of ASCE 7-10 (referred to as "the Standard"). The Commentary of ASCE 7-10 (chapters C26 through C31) contains a good background and discussion of the wind load criteria; that information is not repeated in this document.

Chapters 4 through 13 of this guide contain 14 worked examples. Various examples illustrate different methods of obtaining wind loads given in the Standard. Suffi cient details of calculation of wind loads are provided to help the reader properly interpret the wind load provisions of the Standard. Sections of the Standard, as well as the fi gures and tables of the Standard, are cited liberally in the examples. The equation numbers given in the examples are from the Standard to allow users to track steps of the Standard. It is necessary to have a copy of ASCE 7-10 to follow the examples and work with this Guide. A copy of ASCE 7-10 can be ordered by calling 1-800-548-ASCE or ordered on-line at http://www.asce.org/bookstore.
