This presentation will start with a review of
exposure categories and how exposure affects wind speeds at a building
site. It will then demonstrate how a site specific exposure can be
computed using ASCE7 methods. The presentation will then cover the origin
and purpose of the Gust Factor for rigid versus flexible buildings, followed by
an illustration of the steps used to calculate the Gust Factor.
