Wind Examples ASCE 7-10/ASCE 7-16 E-Book | Meca Enterprises


The ASCE 7 standard is not a simple standard to follow and apply to “Real World” situations. Therefore, we have written an E-Book to illustrate some common problems that are encountered in structural design.

The E-Book is purchased online at our store for $50. If it’s purchased in combination with MecaWind the user will receive a discount. To take advantage of this discount, add MecaWind to your shopping cart and then you will see the discounted E-Book offered at the bottom of the page.

The E-book offers the following guidance to users:

  1. Compares each structure using ASCE 7-22 and ASCE 7-16, and shows the results using both methods.
    1. (Previous version available for purchase compares ASCE 7-16 and ASCE 7-10)
    2. (Previous version available for purchase compares ASCE 7-10 and ASCE 7-05)
  2. Several different methods are used for each structure (Simplified, Envelope, Simple Diaphragm, etc..)
  3. Examples are worked manually, and then using MecaWind, and both results are presented. This gives the user a detailed comparison of the software results and manual calculations.
  4. The EBook offers the following examples:
    a. Building 35 ft wide x 70 ft long with flat roof
    b. Building 150 ft x 300 ft x 157 ft High with 3′ Solid Parapet
    c. “L” shaped house
