Performance-based wind design (PBWD) allows for more latitude to design engineers; however, it has only been used on a limited number of buildings in and outside the United States. ACI Subcommittee 318-1W, Wind Provisions, was formed to develop a new Code Appendix with PBWD provisions to be included in ACI 318-25.
