looks like someone does need a picture book
and like someone has already taken the time to refine the loading as requested here... now if only us structural guys could only afford something like comsol!  (20k+ per seat anyone!)

Conrad,
Is that not what structural engineers are supposed to do?  Or do they now
need a picture workbook?

Mark,

There was a brief discussion on the list about the subject late last year.
Also the book wind loading of structures by John Holmes also has a brief
discussion on the subject. But for the most part it is a matter of
judgement, based on the coefficients for roofs in the loading code, and drag
coefficients for flat plates.
