This 6-page laminated guide contains everything you need to know about the major revisions and reorganization that has taken place in the wind design provisions of ASCE7-10 and the 2012 IBC. This CodeMaster provides a clear and concise ten-step method which takes the designer through the determination of critical wind-related characteristics for the structure followed by comprehensive flow charts explaining the different design options for the main wind force-resisting system (MWFRS) and components and cladding (C & C). Helpful illustrations are provided to explain the coefficients, terminology, minimum design wind pressures, and opening protection requirements. Plus lots of “Secrets of the CodeMaster” are included to help understand the new provisions.
