Find Your Project's Snow, Wind, and Seismic Loads with Google Maps

The search function, based on Google Maps, establishes the corresponding location to determine the following:

  • Snow:
    • Snow load zone
    • Characteristic value of snow load sk
  • Wind:
    • Wind zone
    • Basic wind velocity vb,0
    • Basic velocity pressure qb
  • Earthquake:
    • Seismic zone
    • Peak ground acceleration agR
    • Period, risk coefficient, and so on
  • Tornados (US only):
    • Design wind speed V

The print function shows all initial values for snow, wind, and seismic actions that are necessary for load assumptions. Therefore, special areas in the Harz, Deister, and the North German Plain are included in the database.

Use the print function to get an overview of all input values for snow, wind, and seismic actions required for the load calculations.

Although the data can be manually transferred to external programs, an additional web application is available for automated data transfer. Of course, that makes things a lot easier for you.
