Free Webinar: Calculation of Design Wind Loads per ASCE 7-16 Using Wind Simple v2.0
by Tayseer Tasbahji, M.S.
November 26 January 3, 2020; 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM Pacific Time
This free webinar will discuss determination of wind loads on enclosed simple diaphragm buildings of height up to 160 ft using the simplified procedure of ASCE 7-16. The calculation procedure will then be demonstrated using the new version of Wind Simple (V2.0), a software produced to quickly calculate wind loads applied on both the Main Wind Force Resisting System and Components & Cladding. Through multiple examples, the seminar will show how to increase productivity and efficiently complete wind load calculations in simple steps. The seminar will highlight upon the intuitive and user-friendly interface, along with the built-in warnings and functions to help promote fast design and minimize error.
