AbstractThis report describes a pilot survey carried out in and around Ottawa during the winter of 1965-66 dealing with sloped roofs only. This survey must be considered strictly as a pilot study because it covers one year only. The report contains a brief description of slope reduction factors used in other codes (Section IV) in addition to the results of the survey and a brief discussion on the release mechanism for snow sliding off roofs (Section V).
