Performance-based design for seismic engineering has been used for buildings in the United States and internationally for many years. Performance-based wind design (PBWD) is a natural extension of the overall PBSD framework.

ASCE/SEI “Prestandard for Performance-Based Wind Design” is published by ASCE/SEI to advance the state-of-art performance-based wind design. PBWD can be used for designing Main Wind Force Resisting System (MWFRS) of the building and/or the envelope of building. Three methods are proposed in ASCE/SEI Prestandard for designing MWFRS using performance-based design approach. The presentation focuses on Method 1.

The potential benefits to PBWD include a more efficient and effective structural design by allowing modest levels of nonlinearity.

The learning objectives are:
  1. Participants will learn how to meet (a) Occupant comfort performance objective (b) Operational performance objective and (c) Continuous occupancy/limited interruption performance objective.
  2. Participants will learn how to implement Method 1 to evaluate continuous occupancy/limited interruption performance objective.
  3. Participants will learn a path to implement PBWD on their projects using IBC provision 104.11 and understand requirements for peer review.
