Concise, visual explanations of code provisions that apply to wind loads

This practical guide provides engineers with a visual overview of the code provisions pertinent to wind loads. Free of complicated and confusing explanations, the book includes numerous design aids, figures, and flowcharts that clearly demonstrate the code provisions. Written by a recognized expert in the field, Wind Loads: Time-Saving Methods Using the 2018 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-16 contains simplified, step-by-step procedures that can be applied to main wind force resisting systems and components and cladding of building and nonbuilding structures. Examples and companion online Excel spreadsheets can be used to accurately and efficiently calculate wind loads.
