Pressure coefficients for other common types of eaves are be in 3. NOTE 3 In zone D, where both positive and negative values are given, both values should be considered.

Health and Safety Executive. The shape of the roof in Figure 35 represents a typical arbitrary roof plan. Load effects, for example bending moments and shear forces, at any level in a building should be based on the diagonal dimension of the loaded area above the level being considered, as illustrated in Figure 5c.

Editions of these publications current at the time of issue of this standard are listed on the inside back cover, but reference should be made to the latest editions. The standard measure of probability 6939-2 the cumulative distribution function CDFconventionally given the symbol P used elsewhere in this standard for wind loadand corresponding to the annual risk of not being exceeded.

The maximum net pressure coefficient Cp across internal walls should be taken as 0.

Your basket is empty. Negative pitch angles occur when the roof is a hipped-trough form.

More accurate values of these factors may be derived using Annex C when the building characteristics are not typical, or when the effects of topography and terrain roughness need to be taken into account. Reference heights Hr are defined with the pressure coefficient data for each form of building.


NOTE 1 The annual mode, corresponding to bd most likely annual maximum value.

The standard method gives conservative level of dynamic excitation to determine: The full analysis of the governing relationships leads to equations which are too complex for codification purposes. Because of gs it is anticipated that the standard method will be used for most hand-based calculations and that the directional method will be implemented principally by computer.

Users of British Standards are responsible for their correct application. These zones are defined from the upwind corner. When topography is not to be considered, the altitude factor Sa should be determined from: The reference height for zone E should be taken as the top of the lower storey The greater negative pressure suction determined for zone E or for the zone A in item ashould be used.

External pressure coefficients for flat roofs with edge parapets are given in Table 8, dependent upon the ratio of the height h of the parapet, defined in Figure 17ato the scaling length b. The size of each of these zones is given in Figure An analytical approach to wind velocity gust factors.

Two sets of values are given at these pitch angles and they should be treated as separate load cases. As each is assessed differently by the directional method, it is necessary to calculate the effective wind speed Ve twice, as follows, and to take the larger value of Ve obtained: The 3699-2 of flexible clad temporary structures. Procedures are also given to enable the standard effective wind speed to be used with the directional pressure coefficients and for the directional effective wind speeds to be used with the standard pressure coefficients.

NOTE The pressure coefficients for non-vertical walls in Table 29 are essentially identical to bss pressure coefficients for steep pitched roofs in 3.


This new edition introduces Annex G in which empirical equations are provided to enable the topographic location factor s to be calculated. For external pressures the diagonal dimension a is the largest diagonal of the area over which load sharing takes place, as illustrated in Figure 5.

Standards are also available from the BSI website at http: The wind direction, principal dimensions and scaling length remain as defined in 3.

P holds well for small values of P. NOTE 4 Values of coefficients for other vs directions are given in 3. Skip to main content.

In reading the value of s from these figures, the location with respect to the crest of the feature is scaled to the lengths of the upwind LU or downwind LD slopes as follows: Fitting the dynamic pressure q to the FT1 model has been standard practice in most of Europe for many years, whereas the practice in the UK had previously been to fit the wind speed V.
