Another Wind Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I’m muddling my way through the ASCE 7-05 wind provisions and I’m not quite sure how to handle a dutch gable, specifically when determining the external pressure coefficient.  Would you just consider it a hip roof when determining pressures parallel to the ridge?  Or can it be idealized as a gable?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
