Thank you all.

Yes, it is a rule that wind load and earthquake loads should not be considered together.

Wind load and earthquake load not consider together.

TAPASH PAUL said:   6 years ago
Here, the seismic load is maximum w.r.t wind load, so the seismic load is considered.

Assumed as wind and earthquake forces will never act together, so seismic only considered.

Vaibhav said:   7 years ago
Is it every time possible that, wind load is always less than earthquake load?

@Mr. Anurag.

If there is seismic wave then the effect of wind is neglected, it is not optional.

Saajan said:   8 years ago
Wind load is given because this question is for GATE examination. Just for the sole purpose of creating confusion.

Anurag srivastava said:   9 years ago
Then why wind load is given when it is optional.

Design moment = maximum of 1.2(DL + LL + EQ/WL).
