Re: Reduction of Snow Load?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Reduction for what?  Roof slope reduction is in section 1614, unless Appendix chapter 16 has been adopted.  Reduction for inclusion in seismic weight is allowed by Section 1612.3.2 Exception 2.  I have heard of snow load reduction based on tributary area being proposed, but I think that reducing snow load based on tributary area is a faulty concept, and should not be done.
Don't forget about drift loads.

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