Re: Steep-sloped Roof C&C Calculations

    Somewhere I once read for angles greater than 45deg you need to use the wall coefficients.

Subject: Steep-sloped Roof C&C Calculations



I am trying to figure out the value of GCp (external pressure coefficient) used for calculating C&C wind forces on a building w/ h>60 ft, and a 55 degrees roof slope.


However, the coefficients on Figure 17 of ASCE 7-02 are for roofs with angle <= 10 degrees. (per note 6)


Note 6 on the same figure also directs me to Fig 6-11 for other roof angles, but Fig 6-11 is only good for roof angles up to 45 degrees.


Can someone help with this subject matter?
