This web seminar was originally aired on April 24, 2012, and is being offered in DVD format now with the full audio-visual experience.Why is ASCE 7 wind design so confusing? Why are there so many methods? Why do they keep on changing? What are the differences among all-heights method, directional procedure, envelope procedure, and the alternate all-heights method? What is the new simplification of the all-heights method all about in ASCE 7-10? These are some of the questions that are answered in this web seminar. In addition, the design wind loads for the same building are determined using the following three methods:

  1. General analytical procedure or directional procedure of ASCE 7-10
  2. Alternative all-heights method of the 2012 IBC
  3. New simplified version of the general analytical procedure in ASCE 7-10

The comparisons among the three methods are interesting and instructive.

Dr. S. K. Ghosh is known internationally for his work in earthquake engineering. He has influenced seismic design provisions in the United States for many years by serving on or chairing numerous committees and advisory panels. He specializes in the analysis and design, including wind and earthquake resistant design, of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Dr. Ghosh is active on many national technical committees and is a fellow of ASCE, SEI, ACI, and PCI. He is a member of ACI Committee 318, Standard Building Code, and the ASCE 7 Standard Committee (Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures). He is a former member of the Boards of Direction of the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI). In addition to authoring many publications in the area of structural design, he has investigated and reported on structural performance in recent earthquakes.
