Examples

For a typical slope of 30°, the increase in load per horizontal surface area is 15%; hence, an MCR roof would weigh 0.31 kN/m2 of area covered.

Standard total load (as per given sample) = 1.00 kN/m2

Snow load (according to climatic zones, typically 0.03 kN/m2 for each 10 mm of snow)

The steel truss samples presented in this manual are not heavier than 3 kN (300 kg) per individual truss.

Concentrated load ( "man load") due to foot traffic for fixing and maintenance, typically 0.8 kN.

· Single shear plane (kN) 0.25 0.35 0.45 0.55 0.70 0.85 1.0 1.3 1.5

· Double shear plane (kN) 0.50 0.70 0.90 1.10 1.40 1.70 2.0 2.6

In case the design load had been calculated to be 1.10 kN/m2, the following procedure would have to be applied:

In case the design load had been calculated to be 1.25 kN/m2, the following procedure would have to be applied:

We assume the load as commended in this guide for an MCR roof: 1.0 kN/m2
