Get wind speeds directly from your design code, via SkyCiv’s interactive wind zone map
Calculating wind loads is not always an easy process. That’s why SkyCiv have released a free wind speed map to help engineers pull wind speeds on various locations from simply entering in a site location. Currently, the wind speed map supports the following design codes and site locations:
|Design Standard||Countries/Regions Supported|
|ASCE 7-10||United States|
|AS/NZ 1170||Australia and New Zealand|
|EN 1991:1||UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Greece, Belgium, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Luxembourg|
By simply entering the project address, Zip Code or city (or even click-dragging the red pin) – the wind speed and elevations will immediately display on both the map (via a dialog box) and the left column input fields. These values can be changed at any time for use with the ASCE 7-10, AS 1170, NBCC or EN1 pressure calculations.
The various design code wind speed zones have been digitalized and rebuilt as this interactive wind speed map for engineers to get accurate wind speeds by locations. The free tool allows up to 3 entries per day before it requires you to sign up for a SkyCiv Free Account. From here you can make as many calls as you like to get the wind speeds of various locations.
