AbstractMechanically attached flexible membrane roofs are used on more than half of North American commercial buildings. Proper design is critical to ensuring good performance of this type of roof against wind uplift and to preventing failure. This publication provides extensive new information to help designers achieve good design. The information is based on ten years of NRC research, critical input from industry experts and the development of a new dynamic wind uplift testing protocol. A comprehensive appendix includes excellent examples of wind load calculations.
