RE: Reduction of Snow Load?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
No, snow load is different than live load and cannot be reduced because a member has a large tributary area.  UBC 1614 can be used to reduce the snow load based on the slope of the roof.

 Can I use The UBC - Section 1607.5 to determine the reduction of snow load?
