A Guide for ASCE 7-10 Standard Users and Designers of Special Structures

ASCE 7 is the US standard for identifying minimum design loads for
buildings and other structures.  ASCE 7 covers many load
types, of which wind is one.  The purpose of
this book is to provide structural and architectural engineers
with the practical state-of-the-art knowledge and tools needed for
designing and retrofitting buildings for wind loads. The book will
also cover wind-induced loss estimation. This new
edition include a guide to the thoroughly revised, 2010
version of the ASCE 7 Standard provisions for wind loads;
incorporate major advances achieved in recent years in the design
of tall buildings for wind; present material on retrofitting and
loss estimation; and improve the presentation of the material to
increase its usefulness to structural engineers.

Key features:



  • New focus on tall buildings helps make the analysis and design
    guidance easier and less complex.


  • Covers the new simplified design methods of ASCE 7-10, guiding
    designers to clearly understand the spirit and letter of the
    provisions and use the design methods with confidence and
    ease.


  • Includes new coverage of retrofitting for wind load resistance
    and loss estimation from hurricane winds.


  • Thoroughly revised and updated to conform with current practice
    and research.
