9780470464922: Design of Buildings for Wind: 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.

From the Back Cover:

The updated practical guide to the design for wind of low- and medium-rise buildings, tall buildings, and special structures

Design of Buildings for Wind, Second Edition is a practical guide that uses physical and intuitive approaches as well as practical examples to demonstrate how to interpret and use provisions of the ASCE 7-10 Standard and design structures for strength and serviceability. Written by one of the world's foremost wind engineering experts, Emil Simiu, this unique text is written specifically for designers and structural engineers.

Covering routine buildings, tall buildings, and other structures, Design of Buildings for Wind, Second Edition contains a wealth of step-by-step numerical examples, as well as links to publicly available software, to assist structural engineers in understanding and using the elements of wind and structural engineering required for design. Thoroughly revised and updated to conform to current practice and research, the Second Edition includes:

  • New coverage of ASCE 7-10 Standard design methods, guiding designers to clearly understand the spirit, letter, and limitations of the provisions and use the design methods with confidence and ease

  • New focus on tall buildings to help make the analysis and design easier and more transparent

  • New material on structural reliability and estimation of wind-induced losses
