Has anyone ever compared the ASCE 7-02 component wind loads to the 1997 UBC wind loads for components? We started reviewing shop drawings for a project for claddding and girts for a transfer tower using the ASCE spec. and then found out we had to use the UBC. My calcs. show an increase in wind load of 50%. They are saying I am wrong but at this time won't review my calculations. It is costing the fabricator money.
It is exposure C at 105' high, 90 mph, 68 sf. area of cladding for the girt loading.

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Mooreâ€™s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Download Now
Current integrated circuit (IC) designs are complex, which can result in different voltages being located close to one another. To prevent time dependent dielectric breakdown (TTDB), it is essential to incorporate space rules within IC design. Download Now
