Wind loads for gables >45 degress

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone have a reference for C&C loads for gable roofs with slopes greater than 45 degrees? The last two weeks I've had two high-pitch roofs (16:12 and 15:12) come into the office. On the 16:12, we were looking at MWFRS, and took the roof as a wall (seemed conservative). On the 15:12, I've got some existing conditions and wanted to sharpen the pencil a bit...only to find that none of the gable charts go above 45 degrees.

So has anyone seen any GCp tables for, say, 45-60 degree roofs?
