STD310 – Part 1 of 4: Wind Speed and Design Pressure Determination According to ASCE 7-10


PDF YouTube Q&A SelfStudy

This presentation uses the 2012 Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) as the basis for describing how wind loads are developed from the wind speeds shown in ASCE 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures. The WFCM prescriptive method will is used to illustrate the magnitude and applied location for loads applicable to low-rise wood frame construction.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Be able to determine site-specific wind speeds using ASCE 7-10
  2. Understand how wind speeds are used for calculating Main Wind Force Resisting System (MWFRS) and Components and Cladding (C&C) loads
  3. Understand how to convert from ASCE 7-10 back to ASCE 7-05 wind speeds
  4. Understand how to develop loads from wind speeds
