Apply snow loading

Snow loads are applied via the snow wizard, the functionality of which varies according to the head code being worked to:
  • US head code - snow model data is generated, snow loadcases are set up, loads are created in the balanced loadcase
  • EC head code - snow model data is generated, snow loadcases are set up, loads are created in the undrifted loadcase
  • AS, BS or IS head code - snow loadcases are set up
Irrespective of the head code, a typical workflow for running the snow wizard is as follows:
  1. Prior to running the snow wizard ensure that roofed areas of the model are 'clad' with roof panels that have had their roof panel types set appropriately.
  2. Run the snow wizard.

    This results in a series of snow loadcases being set up.

  3. Manually apply loads to loadcases on completion of the snow wizard as necessary.
  4. Include the snow loadcases in combinations in the usual manner - either using the Combination Generator or manually.
