The Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of ASCE is pursuing, as part of its Vision, the advancement of performance based design. The 2016 edition of ASCE 7 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, introduced the target reliability tables into the basic requirements for structural design within Chapter 1 General Provisions. As part of the pathway to develop and provide a performance-based design approach for wind, system reliability targets must be developed into the basic requirements to achieve target performance objectives corresponding to various levels of wind hazard. Previously funded, ongoing work to develop system reliabilities for wind needs to be peer reviewed and proposed into the consensus process of ASCE 7-22 for inclusion into Chapter 1. Furthermore, there is no existing guidance for designers on how to conceive of a performance-based approach for wind beyond the ASCE 7 provisions that permit its use.
