SubjectSnow and Ice loads
AbstractBecause of the importance of snow loads on roofs in the cold climate of Canada, continuous efforts are being made to obtain a better assessment of snow loads on roofs as a basis for an improved formulation of design snow loads in the National Building Code. In general terms the problem is to recommend a design snow load that is high enough to reduce the probability of failure to an acceptable level but, at the same time, not so high that unreasonable construction costs will result.
