  1. Figure 01 - Graded Wind Load Over Different Building Heights

    Wind Depending on the Structure Height for Vertical Walls

    The wind loads are regulated according to Eurocode 1 - Actions on structures - part 1-4: General actions - Wind loads. The nationally determined parameters of a respective country can be found in the National Annexes.

    Wind is the only climatic load acting on every single type of structure in the entire world, different from other loads like snow, for example. The wind size depends on the geographical location of the structure. That is one of the main reasons why today’s standards have regional division (wind zones) and consideration of altitude, as well as variation of dynamic pressure depending on the height above ground for a ‘normal’ site, without masking effect.

  3. Considering Snow Overhang

    Considering Snow Overhang

    The ‘Generate Snow Loads’ function provides the option to consider snow overhang. Thus, the load of the snow overhang is applied automatically to the eaves using distributed load or several nodal loads.

  4. Not Treating Snow and Wind Together as Collateral Actions

    Not Treating Snow and Wind Together as Collateral Actions

    According to DIN EN 1990/NA:2010‑12 - NDP to A.1.2.1(1) Comment 2, it is necessary to only apply one of the two climatic actions in the combination expressions for actions according to 6.4.3 and 6.5.3 in the case of places located up to +1,000 m above mean sea level if snow and wind are available as collateral actions in addition to non‑climatic leading action.
