Wind loads on steel structures are determined by first establishing the pressure distributions on structures after considering the appropriate design wind velocity, the exposure condition, and the local variation of wind pressure on the structure (Art. 9.2). Then, the wind loads on frames and structural elements are determined by distributing the wind pressure in accordance with the tributary areas and relative stiffness of the
