AbstractThis paper describes a web-based roof wind design calculator developed to improve the design of roofs by calculating wind loads. Named Wind-RCI (Wind-Roof Calculator on Internet), it calculates wind uplift design loads as a function of various parameters such as roof type, slope, wind speed, building height, roof area, building terrain, building type and openings. The web-based deign tool integrates several procedural steps and reduces the possibility of code language misinterpretations.
