Design wind loads for roof:

Obtain GC
p
from Fig. 6.11B based on EWA of roof element

For the roof decking on the project structure:

EWA for nails in decking and decking < 10 ft
2


GC
p
= -2.8, +0.3 for corners
GC
p
= -1.8, +0.3 for edge zones
GC
p
= -1.0, +0.3 for interior zones

p

= q
h
[GC

)]

= 31.6[2.8+0.18] = 94.2 psf upward on corners (a x a)
= 31.6[1.8+0.18] = 62.6 psf upward on edge strips (a wide)
= 31.6[1.0+0.18] =37.3 psf upward on interior
= 31.6[0.3+0.18] = 15.2 psf downward on all parts

For the roof joists on the project structure:
EWA for joists = 12(12)/3 = 48 ft

= 31.6[0.95+0.18] = 35.7 psf upward on interior
