  INPUT
Select Solid for enclosed sunrooms & screen rooms. Open may be used if majority of flowthru can be achieded by removal of window/screen panels
      ADDITION CLASSIFICATION
Freestanding can only be used if all four sides are open and unobstructed from full wind flow CONSTRUCTION CATEGORY
Monoslope is limited to 30 degrees (6/12 slope), Gable 45 degrees (12/12 slope) ROOF TYPE
0.5/12=3°
1/12=5°
2/12=10°
3/12=14°
4/12=19°
5/12=23°
6/12=26°
7/12=30°
8/12=34°

ADDITION CLOSEST ROOF SLOPE
/12
Includes main residence + addition. This helps set the end zone width for pressure interpolation. See help - glossary link above for explanation. MIN OVERALL BLDG DIMENSION
FT
Input the max length of the building. This helps getting the roof overall area. See help - glossary link above for explanation. MAX OVERALL BLDG DIMENSION
FT
This is the average roof height of the main residence from the peak to the eave. See help - glossary link above for explanation. MEAN ROOF HEIGHT, MRH
FT
This is needed to determine canopy pressure. MEAN EAVE HEIGHT
FT
Select Yes if within 90% of height at eave. This changes the canopy pressure per ASCE coefficients. IS CANOPY AT EAVE?
For Every 1,000 ft above sea level, atmospheric pressure and corresponding wind pressure is decreased per ASCE 7-16. Select 0 if unsure or at sea level. ELEVATION ABOVE SEA LEVEL
FT
To convert Vasd to Vult use the formula: Vult=Vasd/sqrt(0.6)       WIND VELOCITY, Vult
MPH
See help - glossary link above for explanation.      ASCE EXPOSURE CATEGORY
This is the overall span including overhang for monoslope, ridge to eave plus overhang for gable. Used to set H*H/3 for panel tributary area for pressure determination. ROOF PANEL LENGTH
FT
Used to set H*W for panel tributary area for pressure determination. ROOF PANEL WIDTH
FT
RESULTS
Result is ASD. Note: a 2psf dead load has been added to this result for typical sunroom panels. Adjust as needed for dead load and porosity for open trellis/pergolas. POSITIVE (DOWNWARD) PRESSURE

INVALID WITHOUT
ENGINEER SEAL

PSF
lt is ASD. Note: a 2psf dead load has been subtracted this result for typical sunroom panels. Adjust as needed for dead load and porosity for open trellis/pergolas. NEGATIVE (UPLIFT) PRESSURE
