Load : Snow Load on Multiple Roof

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     I am designing a multiple curved sawtooth roof. I would like to ask 
     anybody who has experience in interpreting the code requirement for 
     snow loading on this type of roof. The question is:
     
     Do we have to combine the loading due to unbalanced load for sawtooth 
     roof and the loading due to drift surcharge on the lower roof?
     
     Thanks
