K zt is determined from three multipliers, K 1K 2and K 3which are obtained from Fig. In Proceedings of the 7th U. The alternative would be to introduce a number of exceptions to use of Exposure B in suburban areas, which would ascr an undesirable level of complexity. A return period of about years has been used previously for earthquake loads. Method 1 is based on awce low-rise procedure from Method 2, as shown in Fig.
C through C, particularly since the Japanese ssce set has limited observations for the more flexible buildings sensitive to wind effects and Japanese construction tends to be stiffer. The effect of the change in terrain roughness on the exposure coefficient at the site can be represented by adjusting K zd by an increment Kthus arriving at a corrected value K z for the site.
K 1 is related to the shape of the topographic feature and the maximum speed-up near the crest, K 2 accounts for the reduction in speed-up with distance asve or downwind of the crest, and K 3 accounts ASCE 7: In an effort to exclude situations where assce or no topographic effect exists, condition 2 has been added to include the fact that the topographic feature should protrude significantly above by a factor of two or more upwind terrain features before it becomes a factor.
All eight patterns should be modified in this way as a separate set of load conditions in addition to the eight basic patterns. This wind speed represents an approximate limit state event using the wind load factor of 1.
The standard in Section 6. Is flexible with natural frequencies normally below 1 Hz. While local records of limited extent often must be used to define wind speeds in wsce wind areas, care and conservatism should be exercised in their use.
The coefficients are based on wind tunnel studies [Refs.

For low buildings this does not make much difference, but for the example of ascr ft tall building in Exposure B with a highest opening at 60 ft, the difference between q and q60 represents a 59 percent increase in internal pressure. It is important to note that significant torsion can occur on asde buildings also [Ref.
Strong winds in the atmospheric boundary layer. The scale contains five categories of hurricanes and distinguishes them based on wind speed intensity, barometric pressure at the center of the storm, and estimated storm surge and damage potential. ASCE11— The external pressure coefficients and zones given in Fig. Additional pressure 7: Note 4 of Fig.

A value of 0. C gives the highest cladding pressures.
Two figures are provided. The second case arises where components ssce as roofing panels, wall studs, or roof trusses are spaced closely together. Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. This procedure gives the same speed as does area-averaging the year speeds from the set of stations. A designer is free to use any other rational procedure in the approved literature, as stated in Section 6.
Impact of Wind Load Provisions of ASCE
The distance inland to which hurricanes can influence wind speed increases with the return period. For the designer to use Method 1 for the design of the MWFRS, the building must conform to all of the requirements listed in Section 6. It does not include allowances for across-wind loading effects, vortex shedding, instability due to galloping or flutter, or dynamic torsional effects.
Channeling effects can be caused by topographic features e. A comparative study of major international codes and standards.
