State Snow Load Information Alabama. Use IBC 2003—0 psf-10 psf with Case Study Areas at higher elevations. Alaska. Use IBC 2003—25 psf-300 psf —And— State of Alaska has given Authority to Local Building Officials for determining required Snow Loads for their municipalities.
GroundSnowByZip is a tool for Architects, Engineers and Builders to easily determine the ground snow load (Figure 7-1 (Table 7-1 for Alaska) of ASCE 7-05) for any location in the continental United States.To determine the design ground snow load, fill in the address below. You only need to fill in either the city and state or the zip code.
The ground snow load map shown below was scanned from the ASCE 7-10 (Figure 7-1). Ground snow loads, p g, for the contiguous United States can generally be determined using this map. Ground snow loads for sites at elevations above the limits indicated and for all sites labeled "CS" require site-specific case studies and approval from the ...
Use our ASCE Ground Snow Loads map to easily obtain the ground snow load (Figure 7-1 of ASCE 7-10) for any location in the contiguous United States. You can click on the map below to determine the design ground snow load, latitude and longitude and elevation for that location. Non-shaded (CS) areas require site-specific Case Studies to establish ground snow loads.
An interactive map that allows users to enter a location and receive the elevation and snow load for that spot. An extension of the report and a map related to the 1986 report by Ronald Sack and A. Sheikh-Taheria on the Ground and Roof Snow Loads for Idaho.
Ground snow load is defined as the weight of snow on the ground . surface (IBC, 2012). Ground snow load values are established using data collected by the National Weather Service. Maps of ground snow loads in IBC and in ASCE 7 indicate a 2 percent probability of the indicated load being equaled or exceeded in any given year. Ground snow loads ...
Use this information as a guide in constructing a building that will hold up for many years in our rugged climate. Find your town's expected snow loads on this Vermont snow load map or in the listing below. Your building's roof load rating should well exceed your town's expected loads; we recommend a safety margin of at least 10 lbs/sq. ft, and more if local conditions warrant.
However, areas within Spokane County have snow loads as high as 150 pounds per foot. The Scout mapping system available on the County website has snow load maps available on one of the layers to the public. This number provided is the ground snow load, which must be multiplied by .7 to obtain the roof snow load. ...
On the ATC Ground Snow Loads website, users can obtain loads from the ground snow load map printed in ASCE 7-95 through ASCE 7-10 (1995, 1998, 2002, 2005, and 2010). Ground snow load is used with the equations provided in ASCE 7 to determine design snow loads for buildings and other structures.
