Re: Roof Design Components and Cladding or MWFRS - ASCE7-02

Refugio,

To quote from Alan Williams "Seismic and Wind Forces" design exmaples book, it says the following:
"... Components include purlins, studs, fasteners, and roof trusses.  Some elements, such as roof trusses and sheathing, may also form part of the main-force wind resisting system and must be designed for both conditions."
This book is based in IBC 2000, which references ASCE 7-98 by default.
HTH.
