Wind Simple is an intuitive computer program that implements the simplified procedure included in ASCE 7-10 and ASCE 7-16 that applies to enclosed buildings having a mean roof height up to 160 ft that meet the limitations in Part 2 of Chapter 27 in ASCE 7 for main wind-force resisting systems (MWFRS) or Part 4 of Chapter 30 for components and cladding (C&C). Wind Simple takes the design pressures from the applicable tables and sections within ASCE 7, automates the multiple interpolations that are involved, calculates the required adjustment factors, and provides all the results in a series of clear and simple tables and colorful illustrations. Provide the basic wind speed, exposure category, mean roof height, building plan dimensions, and roof type and slope and Wind Simple will provide MWFRS and C&C design pressures for all wall and roof zones. That's all it takes! Wind Simple does it all:

  • Calculates MWFRS and C&C design pressures on wall and roof.
  • Calculates MWFRS and C&C design pressures on roof overhangs..
  • Calculates MWFRS and C&C design pressures on parapets..
  • Calculates MWFRS and C&C design pressures and wind forces at each level of the building..
  • Provides option to include the effects of the internal pressure on the MWFRS wall pressures..
  • Applies the effective area reduction factor for C&C pressures..
  • Calculates the topographic effect factor, Kzt..
  • Provides feedback on the input values as you enter them and guides you through the input process with tips and on-screen messages..
  • Provides the design wind pressures for each applicable zone of the building in clear and concise tables..
  • Documents the calculations in clear and attractive PDF report..

It's just that easy! Wind design, truly, has never been as simple as this!
