This presentation initially took place at IIBEC's 2022 International Convention and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida.
The American Society of Civil Engineers ASCE has updated the wind design provisions in the 2022 edition of ASCE 7. Many of the provisions aim to simplify the use of the component and cladding design provisions, particularly in determining roof zoning and design pressures. The presentation reviews these revisions and discusses the reasons for eliminating the tabular methods, the basis of the new tornado design provisions, and updates to the wind speed maps.
