Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. Also, if this did not apply to live load, then you would rarely if ever get to use the 0. I believe I need to pose that question with the instructor. Thanks in advance for any insight. Download Now White Paper: Fc is the wind speed multiplier ,oads to get the force multiplier you must square 0.

I note that if one accepts the instructor’s definition for enclosed structures, your example and mine do not meet the requirements for open, do not meet the requirements for partially enclosed, and also do not meet the requirements for enclosed.

Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Also, I’m not sure I’d say: The best example is of a building where both sidewalls are completely sheeted and both endwalls are completely open. Users are cautioned to be sure to use the correct windspeed associated with the edition of ASCE 7 being used in the design.

Too much to describe here, but can anyone help – I cant post my email, where can I post those documents for use on the forum?

Windspeeds are also provided for serviceability purposes for,and year return periods when using ASCE The material presented ascce the windspeed report should not be used or relied upon for any specific application without competent examination and verification of its accuracy, suitability and applicability by engineers or other licensed professionals.

Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. The load combinations of There are a whole different set of requirements for that. Essentially all loads with the exception of dead load and superimposed dead load can be classified as “transient” and therefore come under the umbrella of the 0.

User judgement is certainly in order. Are you an Engineering professional? That’s not what the code definition says.

Sorry for the novel, hope it helps. Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. My example is not open on two sides but works the same way as yours. So I don’t think transient is the best term to apply to snow load if a reduction is implied to be used by the code.

I may be the one who’s wrong here. So is Live load a transient load?

ASCE Wind Loads – definition for enclosed structure – ASCE (civil) Code Issues – Eng-Tips

To find the windspeed for a specific site, select one of the following methods: Students Click Here Join Us! You can calculate wind loads per ASCE without the Kd factor and use whatever load combinations you think are appropriate.

Are ASCE wind loads ascf or service level? I would agree with you. Rather it is intended to account for the reduced probability that the transient load will occur simultaneously – it is doubtful you would have a full live load during a hurricane for instance.

ATC does not intend that the use of this information replace the sound judgment of such competent professionals, having experience and knowledge in the field of practice, nor to substitute for the standard of care required of such professionals in interpreting and applying the results of the windspeed report provided by this website.


The definition specified in the course for enclosed buildings was slightly different from the one in ASCE I’d like to figure out if my interpretation of the definition of enclosed buildings is correct. I would really like to know what the ICC intent was so if I’m challenged in the future, I have a source. Keep in mind this is a velocity multiplier and force levels are equal to velocity levels squared.

Are you an Engineering professional? Here is the instructor’s definition for Enclosed Buildings: I know we’ve had these discussions before in Eng-tips – the IBC doesn’t seem to define what the word transient means – I know its wind and seismic, but the context of the code seems to imply that there are “other” transient loads that may be combined with wind or seismic.

Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting.

And taking the square root of this to make it in terms of force: So you increase All, I recently finished an online self-learning course on basics of ASCE wind loads, for continuing education hours needed for license renewal.
