Standards related to wind loading in the US

Wind load related standards in the US are ASCE 7-05 and ASCE 7-10. These stan­dards also briefly define the requirements for wind tunnel testing. A more thorough description of how to conduct wind tunnel tests in boundary layer wind tunnels is given in ASCE 49-12. This standard also defines appropriate methods for post-­pro­cessing of wind tunnel data.

Moreover, wind tunnel testing of solar roof mount systems was specified in the SEAOC-PV2-2012 report which was published by the Structural Engineers Association of California.
