How will the updates to the ACSE 7-16 Wind Load Provisions affect your building design?Pablo Picasso once said, 'the older you get, the stronger the wind gets - and it's always in your face.' The same could be said about ASCE 7. The older it gets, the stronger the wind seems to get. It certainly changes with every edition, and we have to understand and adapt to those changes to design our structures to comply with the building code. This topic will guide you through some of the most important changes to the wind load provisions of ASCE 7-16. You will not only learn what changed, but more importantly, why it changed. The latter will help you properly apply the provisions, especially when some judgment must be exercised.
