G.16.4 Snow Load

STAAD.Pro is capable of generating snow loading on a structure in accordance with the provisions of the ASCE-7-02 code. The feature is currently implemented for structures with flat or sloping roofs. Snow load generation for members of open lattice structures like electrical transmission towers is currently not part of this facility. Hence, the feature is based on panel areas, not the exposed width of individual members.
