Publication Provides State-of-the-Practice for Wind Loads at Industrial Facilities
November 4, 2020

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Publications latest committee report, Wind Load Design of Petrochemical and Other Industrial Facilities, Second Edition, provides general guidelines for the computation of wind loads at petrochemical and other industrial facilities.

This new edition reflects various company practices, available research, and committee consensus on key topics on wind design loads of petrochemical and other industrial facilities, including

• Fundamental wind engineering, general aerodynamics, design considerations for nonbuilding structures;
• Analytical determination of wind loads;
• Wind tunnel testing and computational fluid dynamic approaches;
• Alternate methods for determining aerodynamic force coefficient and load combinations;
• Wind loads for open frame structures; and
• Special wind loading requirements for liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities.

The report is intended for use with the general provisions of ASCE 7-16. Representing state-of-the-practice, it will be a valuable resource for engineers familiar with design of industrial-type structures.
