This webinar will discuss select rated roofs and edge metal systems as well as establish roof zone layouts based on prescriptive and performance methods. A discussion of the new code requirements and compliance tools regarding ASCE 7-16 will also be covered. Learners will be able to immediately put their learning into practice, as they will be placed on a project team to work through a wind uplift design.

This course was very helpful. Demonstration for how to use software would be helpful (and links to the programs), but I understand that would take more time than available. Perhaps a separate webinar, if it seems appropriate. Thanks!

Excellent presentation with an overview of the various factors that are used to calculate code-prescribed wind pressures, as well as multiple examples with comparisons of the wind pressures derived from ASCE 7-10 versus ASCE 7-16.
