Snow drift calculation IAW ASCE 7-98

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am trying to go through the snow drift calculation in ASCE 7-98 for a
simple valley created by two intersecting roofs.  It is my opinion that
the amount of snow will be tapered to the low end of the roof.   There
does not appear to be a way to account for this however.  I would
appreciate any help on this matter.
