Snow Load Analysis Based on ASCE 7-05 / IBC 2006

Snow load is the downward force on a building’s roof by the weight of accumulated snow and ice. The roof or the entire structure can fail if the snow load exceeds the weight the building was designed to shoulder. Or if the building was poorly designed or constructed. It doesn’t take a blizzard to cause problems.
