[Live Webinar] Wind Force Calculations on Low Rise Buildings

Intended Audience: Civil & Structure Engineers
Credits: 2 PDH Units
When: Wednesday 7/21. 2 – 4 pm EST


This webinar teaches both fundamental and advanced concepts of calculating the wind forces on low rise buildings specifically tailored for engineers and other professionals who have little or no background in the design and analysis for wind loads. Through live interaction, webinar participants will become familiar with general concepts of wind forces, as well as the American Society of Civil Engineers Standard: ASCE/SEI- 7. 2016  (Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures).

We will look at the minimum wind design loads and design formulae in a simplified format, making them easy to understand and apply. You will learn how to analyze important parameters and perform calculations for determining wind loads on buildings. Detailed simplified example will be covered as an application of the covered theory.

Date:  Wednesday. July 21.  Starts: 2 – 4 pm ET
Credits: 2 PDH Units

Learning Objectives:

At the successful conclusion of this webinar, you will learn the following knowledge and skills:

  • The nature of wind
  • Wind turbulence
  • How wind interacts with structures
  • Wind damage
  • ASCE/SEI latest standards for wind loads
  • Wind loads on low-rise buildings (MWFRS)

  1. wind loads


    I would have liked more examples.

  2. 5

    Very Good review of the Wind Fundamentals. Easy to understand.

  3. Good Course- Knowledgeable Instructor


    Instructor did a great job and was clearly very knowledgeable. Was able to link the requirements to the basic physics of wind loads.

  4. wind force calculations on low rise bldgs



  5. Good overview of the subject.


    Nice presentation of the elements of design for wind loads.

  6. Wind Force Calculations on Low Rise Buildings


    A lot of good basic information. It helps if you have some knowledge of wind loading formulas, etc from ASCE 7 before you take the course. I wish we had discussed the difference between basic wind speed (ASCE 7-05) vs ultimate wind speed (ASCE 7-10) as part of the webnair.

  7. [Live Webinar] Wind Force Calculations on Low Rise Buildings


    Very Informative!

  8. 4

    Very good presentation of origin and generation of the plethora of factors affecting wind generated loads to buildings.
    Answers to questions – not so good.

  9. power balancing with variable sources


    Last quarter of the course became difficult to follow and make good notes.

    Great introduction to the loads imposed by wind loads.
