Rink roof collapse in Germany

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Apparently, there are differing stories about just how much snow had built-up on the roof of the ice rink.  Not having designed any structures for snow loading, shouldn't this roof have held up to 1.5ft of snow, considering it's location?  I'd be curious to hear others...
