RE: Wind Load Question

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

I was also going to take a look at that option and, depending on the difference of the wind pressures, use one or the other.

Couldn't you also look at the canopy as a partially enclosed building, 3 sides open with 1 side solid?

Conrad,
 
Thanks for the input.  Your recommendation is basically where I was
heading, so I feel better about that approach now.

Doug,
 
Not sure about ASCE7-05, but AS1170.2 has coefficients for attached
canopies. I recollect the commentary to ASCE7-05 indicating canopy/free
roof
pressure coefficients were derived from AS1170.2 and new research.
 
If no attached canopy coefficients in ASCE7-05, then the coefficients
are
similar order of magnitude to those for free roof blocked under.
 
Alternatively can derive by combination of roof pressure coefficient for
enclosed building and adjacent wall pressure coefficient. For example
overhang coefficient is approximately windward wall coefficient +0.7
combined with windward edge roof coefficient -0.9, both acting upwards
gives
-1.6 (upwards away from roof surface). (sorry +0.8 to ASCE7)
