Guide to Use of ASCE 7-10 Wind Load Provisions
The talk aims at assisting undergraduate students in the use of the wind load provisions of ASCE/SEI Standard 7-10, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, published by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). It will introduce a brief history of the wind load provisions, design approaches specified by ASCE 7-10, and the associated fundamentals in wind engineering. A design example of a low-rise building for wind will be presented to illustrate how wind loads are determined using the design procedure described in ASCE 7-10.
About the Speaker:
Dr. DongHun Yeo’s current research interests are in the area of structural wind engineering with particular emphasis on structural response to wind and computational wind engineering. Dr. Yeo obtained a B.S. (1994) and M.S. (1998) degree in Civil Engineering at Yonsei University, and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2008). In 2008 he became a post-doctoral fellow in Civil Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University. Before pursuing his doctoral degree, he was involved in many design and consulting projects of steel and reinforced concrete structures in Hyundai Construction and Engineering Company, Korea. Dr. Yeo is a member of the Task Committee on Computer-Aided Wind Engineering of the Structural Wind Engineering Committee, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). He is also a graduate-level lecturer in Civil Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University, and a registered professional engineer in Virginia
