I have two engineers looking at the same problem from different angle. The design engineer for large steel girder form system at 100' elevation has presented calculations with the asce 7-02 reference for wind loads that allow the use of this with out guy systems. The reviewing engineer is using UBC 97 thus requiring additional guy systems to support he wind loads.
Which standard is correct and what is the impact on the calculation for this project.
