ASCE 7-05 wind loads: ASCE 7-05 describes wind load calculations for buildings and other structures in two categories, wind loads on Main Wind Force Resisting System (MWFRS), and all components and claddings.
Design wind pressure for MWFRS of flexible building is calculated from the equation 6-19 from ASCE 7-05:
Clarifying the scope and limitations of ASCE/SEI Standard 7-05, this guide outlines the simplified procedure and the analytical procedure for determining wind loads on the main wind force-resisting system (MWFRS) and components and cladding (C&C), and answers 31 frequently asked questions.
