ASCE3— However, it is not possible to simplify the coefficients due to the increased complexity of the components and cladding pressure coefficients.

The true return periods associated with the hurricane wind speeds cannot be determined using the information given in this standard.

Rigid roof and floor diaphragms distributing 7-59 force to any number of vertical MWFRS elements of various stiffness, each of which meets the following at each level of the building: These values include a reduction factor to account for asve lack of perfect correlation between the internal pressure and the external pressures on the building surfaces not containing the opening [Refs. The gust wind speeds over water use a gust factor taking into account the increase in the sea surface roughness with the increase in wind speed.

It is noted that the kd value for round chimneys, tanks, and similar structures is given as 0. Is subject to buffeting by the wake of upwind buildings or other structures.

It can be thought of as the equivalent wind speed used in determination of factored wind 7-9, in contrast to the basic wind speed that is used in determination of nominal wind loads.

Two figures are provided. When using regional climatic data in accordance with the provisions of Section 6.

In addition to structural damping, aerodynamic damping may be experienced by a structure 7-59 in air. If the space behind breached glazing is separated from the remainder of the building by a sufficiently strong and reasonably airtight compartment, the increased internal pressure would likely be confined to that compartment. To better approximate the actual load distribution in such cases, the width of the effective wind area used to evaluate GC p need not be taken as less than one third the length of the area.


Winds blowing over mountain ranges or through gorges or river valleys in these special regions can develop speeds that are substantially higher than the values indicated on the map.

Bridges, cranes, electrical transmission lines, guyed masts, telecommunication towers, and flagpoles. These values may provide some guidance for design. These response components are needed for survivability and serviceability limit states.

For example, individual buildings may be sited away from likely debris sources that would generate significant risk of impacts similar in magnitude to pea gravel i.

Buildings that are clearly unusual should use the provisions of 6. Additional torsional loading can occur because of eccentricity between the elastic shear center and the center of mass at each level of the structure. The gust factor adjustment to reflect peak gust speeds is not always asec and advice from a wind engineer or meteorologist may be needed.

This work confirms the validity of Fig. Thus, for the pressure coefficients given in Figs. For wind coming from the northeast, the most exposed of sectors one or two is used to determine full x and y loading individually, and then 75 percent of these loads are to be applied in each direction at the same time according to the requirements of Section 6.

Axce the response characteristics of the instrumentation used, the peak gust is associated with an averaging azce of approximately 3 s.


The descriptions of the surface roughness categories and exposure categories in Section 6. Clearly, values would change from one set of coefficients to the other following some sort of smooth, but as yet unknown relationship.

In the edition, the parapet provisions have been updated as a result of research performed at the University of Western Ontario [Ref. For simple spanning doors i. Wind pressures on a parapet adce a combination of wall and roof pressures, depending on the location of the parapet, and the direction of the wind Fig. The equal and opposite internal pressures on the walls cancel each other in the horizontal diaphragm. Wind loads on complicated shapes are frequently smaller than those on the simpler shapes of Figs.

Removing this from the load factor gives an effective load factor F of 1. All wind speeds in Table C are 3-s gust wind speeds at 33 ft 10 m above open terrain. The consensus of the committee is that uplift forces may be a significant fraction of the horizontal force. Such would ascw be the case if the surface below the roof was separated structurally from the top roof surface.

While the along-wind loads have been successfully treated in terms of gust loading factors based on quasi-steady and strip theories, the across-wind and torsional loads cannot be treated in this manner, as these loads cannot be related in a straightforward manner to fluctuations in the approach flow.

A comparative study of provisions in codes and standards with wind tunnel data. The pressure coefficient 7-995 provided in this figure are to be used for buildings with a mean roof height of 60 ft 18 m or less.
