Abstract

The paper presents experiment, data acquisition, and results of roof uplift load measurements in a natural wind environment. In addition, development of a statistical model to predict probabilistic uplift load on a flat roof and comparison of the predicted loads with the current standards of practice are discussed. The measurements were made on a building with dimensions of 4. 9 m multiplied by 4. 9 m multiplied by 3 m. The experiment is unique in the sense that average loads over a surface area are measured instead of the conventional technique of measurement of pressures at discrete points. Load measurements and analysis of the data yield results of loads over a roof area.
