AbstractResearch into the action of wind loads on roofs resulted in a six-step procedure for calculating the design wind uplift loads on roof coverings based. The procedure has been integrated into a web-based calculator called Wind-RCI. Based on the National Building Code of Canada (NBC 2005), Wind-RCI allows users to calculate wind loads for Canadian cities by entering the roof location, dimensions, exposure and type. Wind-RCI calculates roof cladding design loads and displays the wind load diagram for the field, perimeter and corner zones of the roof assembly.
