We have carried out the calculations detailed in the standard for some of the main roof/wall configurations likely to be encountered in practice.
The calculations are based on the Standard Method. The results of the calculations are shown in a series of tables. The results are generally conservative, and often a more rigorous calculation may produce a more lower wind loads.

You can view the relevant table by selecting the basic data required and then click the View button below
