External Pressure Coefficient Cp

External Pressure Coefficient Cp

External Pressure Coefficient Cp

I am new to using the NBCC.. I am trying to determine the wind loads on my structure.

1)    Determining p requires me to find Cp where do I find this?
2)    I have a parapet type design so would I simply double the load because I have pressure on both sides?
3)    Uplift, is this the Pi? section (3)

Thanks for the help..

RE: External Pressure Coefficient Cp


First question - do you have the NBCC Part 4 Structural Commentaries (which is a separate publication)?


RE: External Pressure Coefficient Cp

After I posted I realized that I needed to purchase the users guide. The problem I am running into now is that I purchased the 2010 NBCC and the user guide will not even be out until August. I have purchased a 10 day viewing of the 2005 and I am hoping that's going to be close.
