The 2006 IBC relies on ASCE 7-05 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and other Structures and the latest materials standards for structural design provisions. On the other and, the wind design provisions of the 1997 UBC, represent a meaningful simplification of the corresponding provisions in ASCE 7-88. This seminar workbook is designed to help engineers make the difficult transition from the simplified ASCE 7-88 to the unsimplified ASCE 7-05 wind design provisions, and comparisons are made with the 1997 UBC. This seminar workbook considers the fundamentals of structural design necessary for each building to withstand the damaging forces induced by high winds. The meteorological (including climatological) aspects of wind, as well as aerodynamic aspects of wind flow around buildings, are explained. The following examples are presented in this workbook:

1) Design of low-rise main wind force-resisting system using ASCE 7-05 Simplified Procedure (Method 1)
2) Design of low-rise main wind force-resisting system using ASCE 7-05 Analytical Procedure (Method 2)
3) Design of components and cladding of low-rise building using ASCE 7-05 Simplified Procedure
4) Design of high-rise main wind force-resisting system using ASCE 7-05 Analytical Procedure
5) Design of components and cladding of high-rise building using ASCE 7-05 Analytical Procedure
