Unfortunately, that is correct.

But we still have to go through the rather involved 6.5.8.2 to get G, right?

Where and how can one find: ASCE 7-05 has section 6.5.13 for the design of open buildings with monoslope, pitched, or troughed roofs?

    ASCE 7-05 has section 6.5.13 for the design of open buildings with
    monoslope, pitched, or troughed roofs.

    I have an apartment parking cover, simple steel frames w/ metal deck.  It is

    20 cars.  They are simple double T frames w/ purlins, etc.

    How would I get the uplift loads.  ASCE 7 wants Method 2, 6.5.8.2 if I read

    it correctly.  That's a bit extensive, I'd think.

    Is there an acceptable "Rational Analysis" per 6.5.8.3 that is commonly

    used?

    Thanks in advance.
