However it is convienent (to get shears and overturning moments on a shear wall for instance) sometimes to transform the normal pressure into horizontal and vertical components. This graph shows that the magnitude of these components is the same as the normal pressure but applied to the horizontal or vertical projected area.

Fortunately for a symmetric rectangular structure, only two need to be considered - those parallel to each of the major axes.

enlarge 41KB, 800x519 14 15ibcwn One of my pet gripes with the IBC method is that their tables refer to direction as transverse and longitudinal. These distinctions lose their meaning as each side is considered as a "windward" face. Note that the column for "longidutinal" pressures is identical to the "transverse" column for a 0 degree roof angle.

enlarge 45KB, 800x614 18 16ibcvv120 Another gripe that I have with the IBC is that they give numerous tables of pressures with values for different wind speeds. These are not necessary since wind pressures are proportional to the ratio of the velocity squared. In my example I use the values for V=120mph and then multiply those pressures by the ratio of the square of the wind speeds to get values for other wind speeds.

enlarge 131KB, 800x620 19 18ibcxls02a I've used the values for Horizontal and vertical pressures vs roof angle based on a 120mph wind speed. Using the "vlookup" and "index" functions, values for any roof angle can be found by interpolation. For this example the values for roof angles of 5 degrees and 10 degrees are used. The values for Height and Exposure adjustment are also tabulated.

These are to be disregarded per a footnote to the the table. These pressures are for a building with h = 30' located in an Exposure B site.
