International wind loading codes

Besides EN 1991-1-4 and ASCE 7-10, other advanced wind loading codes may be found all around the world. Examples are AS/NZS 1170.2 in Australia and New Zealand, the AIJ Recommendations on Loads for Buildings and the Building Standard Law of Japan, the 2015 edition of the International Building Code or ISO 4354:2009.

The aforementioned codes differ in averaging periods for design wind speeds, pressure coefficients for various structures and wind dynamic effects.
