RE: Ground Snow Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The State of Oregon also has a snow manual, although it is quite old.  I
understand there is an effort to update the manual based on historic
snowfall records.

Subject: Ground Snow Loads



I am a graduate student at the University of Idaho in structures and am 
currently doing research on snow loads for the entire state of Idaho. As 
part of the research, I'm investigating how nearby states have determined 
appropriate ground snow loads. I was hoping you could provide me the name of

the publication(s) used for determining ground snow loads for the states of 
Utah, Nevada, and Wyoming and where I could obtain or borrow a copy. Do 
these states rely soley on information provided by ASCE 7-98? If so, what 
publications are used for design where "case studies" are required? Thanks 
so much.
