Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1134

Approximately when will the next revision or amendment to 222 be? What are the top two or three major changes being contemplated? Will 222 be aligned with ASCE 7-2010 (yes, I'm aware of the FAQ related to this)? Has there been any discussion of aligning 222 wind pattern provisions with those of EN 1993-3-1 and C37?

The current direction is to publish an Addendum to address the wind map changes in ASCE 7-2010. This Addendum is anticipated to be published in the next 18 to 24 months. Revision H is anticipated to be published in the next five years. The EN 1993-3-1 and CSA S37 were considered in the development of the pattern loading methodology.
