Snow Load Calculator

Snow Load Calculator

Snow Load Calculator

I think this calculator is on of the first ones I put together but is actually one that I actually use a regular basis. In my free time I'm thinking about adding some more features to it (ie. attic trusses, scissor trusses) however before I get buried into it too far I thought I would ask other engineers what additional calculations or features would be most helpful for them.

RE: Snow Load Calculator

In the meantime I've added an option that allows one to customize the PDF report that is created with your own company information and logo.


Please be aware that this is very much a work in progress and only a few calculators have been enabled with this option thus far.

None of my calculators are particularly sophisticated but I have had a few requests from other engineers for this sort of thing so I guess my tools do get utilized by other engineers on occasion. The cost of the key is not so much for monetary gain as it is simply a threshold to prevent non-engineers or non-design professionals from passing themselves off as something they are not.
