Description

This course is designed for practicing roof consultants, architects and engineers who want to become more knowledgeable about the major factors that affect designing roofs for wind resistance and in order to meet building codes.  The focus of this course is on calculations of wind uplift pressures according to ASCE 7 methodology. 

Objectives

  • Understand the importance of Velocity Pressure in wind design
  • Evaluate impact of location in the country, surrounding terrain, height of building and other factors on Velocity Pressure.
  • Convert calculated Velocity Pressure into uplift pressures in three zones on the roof.
  • Determine additional pressure on the membrane contributed by internal pressure.
  • Select roof systems based on calculated uplift pressures.
