AbstractSince 1975 recommended design loads on cylindrical curved roofs in the Commentaries on Snow Loads in National Building Code documents have undergone significant changes. This paper presents data and some of the background to the changes, and discusses the problems that have arisen with the recommendations published in the 1977 Commentary. The intent is to make recommended design snow distributions and loads as realistic as possible without undue complication. Further improvements are suggested.
