This presentation will describe the component and cladding (C&C) roof pressure coefficient changes in ASCE 7-16 and how those changes affect wind pressure calculations. There are other changes in ASCE 7-16 that affect wind design that mitigate some of the increases in coefficients. These other changes and the collective effect will be presented. An article in Structure Magazine in July 2018 titled Technical Aspects of ASCE 7-16 is the basis for this presentation.
