This report includes a brief introduction to and
description of the wind loading provisions of the ASCE
(American Society of Civil Engineers) Standard 7-95. An
interactive computer program representing those
provisions was developed and tested by the authors and
NIST staff. The resulting software is included in a
diskette presented in this report. Instructions for the
user of the program are also included. An appendix
contains excerpts from a large number of calculaitons
aimed at verifying the performance of the interactive
program. Following its completion, the program was
submitted for bets-testing by an ASCE-assembled team.
The program presented in this report does not reflect
the results of that testing, and is not an official
version of the ASCE 7-95 Standard. A main purpose of
this report is to serve the needs of professionals
interested in the application of knowledge systems to
the development of computer-based models of standards.
