Im designing a hanging ceiling for external use. I have to follow ASCE as per the project specification. But when i check the code (ASCE )no separate wind load calculation recommendation for Ceiling. If we consider it as components and cladding (C/C) All the hanging rods (M10) fails because of up wards -ve pressure ( bcz of compression) and need to brace all the hanging threaded rods (M10).Th ceiling is hanging on a concrete slab and i think the internal and external pressure has no effect on the wind load on ceiling. please advice me to find solution for applying correct wind load.
