Description / Abstract:

This International Standard specifies methods for the determination of snow load on roofs.

It may serve as a basis for the development of national codes for the determination of snow load on roofs.

National codes should supply statistical data of the snow load on ground in the form of zone maps, tables or formulae.

The shape coefficients presented in this International Standard are prepared for design application, and may thus be directly adopted for use in national codes, unless justification for other values is available.

For determining the snow loads on roofs of unusual shapes or shapes not covered by this International Standard or in national standards, it is recommended that special studies should be undertaken. These may include testing of scale models in a wind tunnel or water flume, especially equipped for reproducing accumulation phenomena, and should include methods of accounting for the local meteorological statistics. Examples of numerical methods, scale model studies and accompanying statistical analysis methods are described in Annex G.

The annexes describing methods for determining the characteristic snow load on the ground, exposure coefficient, thermal coefficient and loads on snow fences are for information only as a consequence of the limited amount of documentation and available scientific results.

In some regions, single winters with unusual weather conditions may cause severe load conditions not taken into account by this International Standard.

Specification of standard procedures and instrumentation for measurements is not dealt with in this International Standard.
