Is there any way you could forward me 1 how flat roof snow load was determined? I am attempting to review the design loads used on an older building designed in which was using ANSI A Apparently this provision also existed in the UBC as the paragraph is not alluded to as changed See Section and b. Are you an Engineering professional? They don’t change their building codes very often but they generate them by themselves. The UBC, although not used in the Chicago area, mentions the use of unbalanced loading for snow loads and roof live loads.

I also noted in the a that there is an exception to the alternate span loading requirement that may or may not apply in Chicago – “Alternate span loading need ansl be considered where the uniform roof live load is 20 psf or more and the provisions of Section c are met.

You will need to find a library which has older Code a5.81 available.
That is exactly what I was looking for. I cannot find any copies of this old a558.1 so any help would be appreciated. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!
