Consideration of Eaves Area Formation when Generating Wind Load

Tips & Tricks

In addition to the geometry and shape of a flat roof, you can also take into account the formation of an eaves area when generating the loading.

The following Eaves Types are available:

  • Sharp-edged eaves area
  • With attic
  • Rounded eaves area
  • Beveled eaves area
