Design of buildings for wind : a guide for ASCE 7-10 standard users and designers of special structures / Emil Simiu.

"ASCE 7 is the US standard for identifying minimum design loads for buildings and other structures. ASCE 7 covers many load types, of which wind is one. The purpose of this book is to provide structural and architectural engineers with the practical state-of-the-art knowledge and tools needed f...
