Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1177

Hello. A question was asked about the validity of using IBC 2012 in lieu of TIA-222_G for wind loads. Your response was that ASCE 7-10 may be used as an alternate, but the response did not specifically address the IBC. Is it to be understood that the IBC is not acceptable whereas the ASCE 7-10 is?Thank you!

Yes, the IBC 2012 wind maps were obtained from ASCE 7-10 wind maps and are identical.
