||Choose the method of specifying wind pressure values from the
- Custom – ASCE 7 or other
user-specified wind pressures
|Intensity vs. Height table
||Enter pairs of data for wind pressure at a
given height (in the current units).
Int cells – wind intensities (pressures) in force/area. Up to
100 different intensities can be defined in the input file per type.
Height cells – corresponding heights in global vertical direction,
measured in terms of actual Y (or Z for Z UP ) coordinates up to which the
corresponding intensities occur.
|Calculate as per ASCE 7
||Opens the ASCE-7 Wind Load dialog, which is
used to generate a wind load per the ASCE 7
specification. Input data on the type of structure,
surrounding terrain, and wind.
