American Society of Civil Engineers - Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures

The American Society of Civil Engineers maintains ASCE 7, a referenced standard in the I-codes. ASCE 7-22 wind load provisions will be referenced in the 2024 International Building Code (IBC) and the 2024 International Residential Code (IRC). Buildings and structures within the scope of the IBC must be designed in accordance with ASCE 7 wind load provisions. The IRC provides prescriptive solutions and component and cladding wind load values based on ASCE 7 minimum loading requirements. This fact sheet highlights a few of the key significant changes to the wind loading design provisions contained in ASCE 7-22, as compared to the previous version (ASCE 7-16), that will affect building design.
