Design of Buildings for Wind

Design of Buildings for Wind 

Emil Simiu

Preference :

For most common types of structures, standard provisions on wind loads are in principle adequate for design purposes. The ASCE 7-10 Standard, among other standards, has incorporated a great deal of wind engineering knowl- edge accumulated within the last half-century. However, because the Standard has been developed by successive accretions, not always smoothly, its previ- ous versions have been perceived by some practitioners as complicated and unwieldy. In an effort to respond to the demand for a clearer document, the ASCE 7-10 version of the Standard has been substantially expanded and revised. However, difficulties remain.
