 Registration is closed for this event

Night 2: May 23rd - Emily Guglielmo – Wind Design for the California Engineer

Wind design is often overlooked as it does not always control the design of a building or components in California.  This seminar is specifically focused on relevant wind design issues for the California engineer. 

The session will use sample problems to discuss the following topics:


Enclosure classification

Analysis methods

Corner zones

Effective wind areas

Rooftop equipment

Rooftop screenwalls

Tall parapets


Rooftop Solar

Serviceability/ Drift Limits

SEAOC Wind Design Manual
