Snow & Wind loads in Checkoslovacia

Snow & Wind loads in Checkoslovacia

Snow & Wind loads in Checkoslovacia

I am an English and have been offered the chance to design a factory unit and mechanical plant for Checkoslovacia. I am toild that the authorites will accept a design to UK codes of practice. Can anyone guide me as to what snow & wind loads to use? Also what would the minimum foundation depth be for frost heave.


RE: Snow & Wind loads in Checkoslovacia

Basic snow load on the theritorry former Chzechosolvakia is from 0.5 kPa too 1.5 kPa its depend on the location. Czech Republic for example Prague,Hradec Kralove, Pardubice , Mlada Bolesav, Pilsen 0.5 kPa,Jihlava Havlickuv Brod 1.0 kPa,Zdar nad Sazvou 1.5 kPa, in Slovak Republic Bratislava 0.7 kPa , Zvolen Banska Bystrica 1.0 kPa, If you now the location based on CSN 73 0035 ( Czech and Slovak code "Action on the structures ") and map of the snow load regions you are able find the basic snow load for the site location. Conserning the wind load basic wind pressure is 0.55 kPa also is depend on the region but it is no so diferent as snow load.
