Hello guys,
I have been reading a lot and asking my colleges in work as well regarding wind load pattern, so here I will explain my doubts, and please explain it to me as much as you can.

In ASCE 7-10
There are 4 case for wind load,
And if I want to think by my self
Case 1 equal 4 cases
Case3 equal 4 cases
Case 2 equal 8 cases
Case 4 equal 16 cases
This what I think, according to my understanding and in this situation the wind load will be applied on all face and all cases will be considered
For example let explain case 2 and why it is 8 cases
1.pwx +ex
2.pwx-ex
3.-pwx+ex
4.-pwx-ex
And another four cases for pyx

I think the 32 case will cover everything except the suction load for roof, which is not considered, the reason behind this as far as I know, that for concrete high rise building the suction is insignificant and not be considered like in steel structures (is this right??),bur maybe it will reverse the deflected shape in the rood slab(which I doubt)

Another thing case 3 which consist of four case take into consideration of sidewall pressures but not conservatively since leeward coefficient is 0,5 while side wall coefficient is 0.7, but I think who put the code found that those 4 case are almost representative for design am I right)

Now to my main question,
In etabs 2015 ,it allow you to make 12 case only which will not cover all case, and I asked my colleges in office and they told that generally in Dubai we take 24 case by creating 12 cases use 0 direction of wind load and 12 cases by using 90 degree in wind load (etabs 9.7 allow entering wind direction whilel etabs 15 will not give you that option), and here my problem start , I need to understand not memorize and do what others do, so what is right what is wrong and how can I do it in etabs.
