Snow Drift and Importance Factor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
    Does the importance factor for snow only apply to flat roof snow loads and not to drifts. I would have thought that the importance factor should be applied to any snow load, but reading through the ASCE 7 section on drifts leads me to believe that the importance factor does not need to be applied to drifts.
