    ASCE Guide to the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-22
    Edition: 2023

Content Description

Wind Loads: Guide to the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-22 provides a comprehensive overview of the wind load provisions in Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-22. It focuses on providing direction while using the provisions that affect planning and designing buildings for residential and commercial purposes.

The guide also reflects significant changes made to the wind load provisions from the previous version of the standard, ASCE 7-16. This guide has been reorganized to follow the chapter organization in ASCE 7-22 and the step-by-step procedures provided in the standard.

Important revisions to the ASCE 7-22 wind load provisions that are covered in this guide include

  • Simplifications to external Component and Cladding (C&C) roof pressure coef?cients for steep slope roofs,
  • Use of ASCE design wind speed maps that include terrain speedup effects,
  • Changes to the definition of the Wind-borne Debris Region, and
  • Deletion of the Simplified Procedures.

Additional revisions to the ASCE 7-22 wind load provisions that are not covered by this guide include

  • Wind loads provisions for ground-mounted solar arrays,
  • Wind Load provisions for elevated buildings (example included in the ASCE 7-22 commentary), and
  • A new chapter dealing with tornado loads (see separate ASCE guide).

Wind Loads provides users with tools and insight to apply ASCE 7-22 in everyday practice. It introduces readers to the relevant sections of the standard and provides an extensive overview of the design procedures, as well as revised wind speed maps.

This guide includes 19 worked examples of real-life design problems applying the appropriate use of analytical and simplified procedures for calculating wind loads for a variety of common structure types. This is an essential reference for practicing structural engineers, as it offers the most authoritative and in-depth interpretation of the wind loads section of Standard ASCE/SEI 7-22.
