RE: 2006 IBC WIND ANALYSIS Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If memory serves,
For parapets:   Case A = Pressure towards building
                Case B = Pressure away from building (suction) 
Not positive but the ASCE 7 Method 2 for sun shades or canopies, using
the "partially enclosed" building requirements.

Ladies & Gents,

Can someone please clarify (simplify) the wind loading
on parapets in section 6.5.12.4.4 related to load case
A & B. My results seem very high. Also which section
best addresses the wind loading on canopies (or sun
shades).

Thanks in advance.
