RE: Snow Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi Marty;
	Snow loads are in Chapter 7 of ASCE7-05.  As you know it?s pretty
different.  There are no specific requirements for valleys but there are
still requirements for drift, unbalanced, sliding, and impact.  Also note
that most of the jurisdictions around us treat Pg (ground snow) = Pf (roof
snow).  Good luck!
	Take care,

1997 UBC Appendix Section 1641.3.2 had provisions for snow loads at valleys.
 
Is there a similar provision in ASCE 7-05
