DESIGN LOADS 15. PREFABRICATED WOOD ROOF TRUSSES:

1. THE VALUES FOR CLIMATIC DATA USED IN THE DETERMINATION OF DESIGN LOADS HAVE BEEN OBTAINED FROM 15.1. DESIGN TO THE REFERENCED BUILDING CODE AND THE TRUSS PLATE INSTITUTE OF CANADA (TPIC) DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS FOR LIGHT METAL
THE 2012 OBC FOR THE SPECIFIC LOCATION OF OTTAWA. PLATE CONNECTED WOOD TRUSSES FOR LOADS GIVEN ON THE STRUCTURAL DRAWINGS.
2. SELF WEIGHT (SWT) IS DUE TO THE WEIGHT OF THE STRUCTURE ITSELF. IT VARIES WITH THE STRUCTURAL
SYSTEM. 15.2. TRUSSES TO BE SUPPLIED BY A MEMBER OF THE CANADIAN WOOD TRUSS ASSOCIATION.

3. SUPERIMPOSED DEAD LOADS (SDL) ARE NON-STRUCTURAL DEAD LOADS DUE TO NON-STRUCTURAL TOPPINGS, 15.3. DESIGN TRUSSES FOR THE MAXIMUM DEFLECTIONS DUE TO THE LIVEL LOAD: L/360. TOTAL DEAD+LIVE INDUCED MAXIMUM DEFLECTION: L/240.
FINISHES, PARTITIONS, ROOFING MATERIALS, SUSPENDED EQUIPMENT, PAVERS, SOIL, ETC.

4. DEAD LOAD (DL) IS THE SELF WEIGHT OF THE STRUCTURE PLUS THE SUPERIMPOSED DEAD LOAD. 15.4. SUBMIT SHOP DRAWINGS SIGNED AND SEALED BY A PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER LICENSED IN THE PLACE WHERE THE PROJECT IS LOCATED PRIOR TO
FABRICATION. SHOP DRAWINGS TO INCLUDE MATERIAL GRADES, CALCULATIONS, LAYOUT DRAWINGS, BEARING AND ANCHORAGE DETAILS,
5. GRAVITY LOADS ARE SHOWN ON PLANS. LIVE LOAD REDUCTION HAS NOT BEEN USED. CONNECTION DETAILS BETWEEN TRUSSES AND THEIR SUPPORTS, AND TEMPORARY AND PERMANENT BRACING AND BRIDGING DETAILS AFFECTING
THE STRUCTURAL CAPACITY OF THE TRUSSES.
6. UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED, DESIGN LOADS SHOWN ARE SPECIFIED (UNFACTORED) LOADS, TO BE USED FOR ULS
DESIGN.
15.5. PROVIDE A STAMPED MEMO FROM THE TRUSS ENGINEER CONFIRMING THEIR REVIEW OF THE LOAD INPUTS INTO THE PROGRAM USED FOR THE
TRUSS DESIGN.
7. FOR POINT LOADS, IF ONLY ONE LOAD IS GIVEN, CONSIDER IT LIVE LOAD.

8. JLL ENGINEERING INC. IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING THE LOADING ACTIONS FROM THE SNOW AND THE WIND
TO ROOF STRUCTURAL PREFABRICATORS.
ROOF DIAPHRAGM LATERAL LOADS ARE RESISTED BY THE CANTILEVER COLUMNS ONLY, AND A 35 KN LONGITUDINAL
& 25 KN PERPENDICULAR FACTORED (PER COLUMN LATERAL LOADING IS PROVIDED BY CIMA+. JLL ENGINEERING INC. IS
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DESIGN OF THE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE ROOF TRUSSES AND THEIR SUPPORTING CONCRETE
CANTILEVER COLUMNS BELOW. THE ROOF DIAPHRAGM DESIGN IS TAKEN THE GREATER OF THE LATERAL LOADING
DETERMINED FROM RD*R0 = 2.0 OR CIMA PLUS INDICATED LOADING ON DRAWING S022.
