Abstract: The objective of the Guide to the Use of the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-95 is to provide guidance in the use of the wind load provisions set forth in ASCE Standard 7-95. The Guide is a completely new document because the wind load provisions underwent major changes from the previous ASCE Standard 7-88 (or ASCE 7-93). The Guide contains six example problems, worked out in detail, which can provide direction to practicing professionals in assessing wind loads on a variety of buildings and other structures. Errata and Clarifications from the previous guide is also included.
