The Wind Design Manual provides examples on wind force design that illustrate the practical requirements of provisions in ASCE/SEI 7-16: Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures. Practicing structural engineers, trained designers, building department engineers, other plan review agencies, professors and students, can all learn from these examples of code-compliant designs engineered to achieve good performance under wind loading.

Developed by the Wind Design Manual Task Group of the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC), the publication draws on the expertise of invited authors from various parts of the United States. The Wind Design Manual is intended for nationwide use, with example problems that apply to a variety of geographic areas. All are presented in a format similar to the SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manuals.

A wide range of topics is covered

  • General topics (4 examples)
  • Specific topics (2 examples)
  • Buildings (3 examples)
  • Solar Photovoltaic systems (7 examples)
