AbstractThe influence of wind and other factors on snow loads on roofs has been recognized in the National Building Code of Canada since 1965. Guidance for common types and shapes of roofs is provided in the 1970 edition of the Code in the Chapter "Coefficients for snow loads on roofs" in Supplement No. 4, Canadian Structural Design Manual. To assist with unusual types of roofs and conditions a collection of case histories, "Snow accumulations in Canada, Case histories: I" was published in January 1967 (NRC 9287). Case histories: II is an expansion and amplification of Case histories: I.
