Proper Snow Loads – Presentation from NFBA Expo 2020

UPDATED AFTER EXPO: These are the slides as shown at the at the NFBA Expo in Des Moines, IA on Feb. 27, 2020: Proper Snow Design Loads for Post Frame Buildings. The Winter Snow Accumulation Maps are the pages I had scrolling at the beginning of the talk while we talked about probability and coin tosses to get through the next 50 years.

Thank you to all who attended this presentation and for the feedback received after the presentation. I am sorry I didn’t leave enough time to get through questions and dialogue. If you have feedback for me or questions, please reach out to me!

Although I didn’t mention this during the presentation, the title of this presentation could have been truncated to just Proper Snow Design Loads and still been appropriate for most buildings. Also, I may post additional information here in the future on the Snow Load simplification recommended within the presentation.
