Hello, I am looking to calculate the wind loads on an exterior ceiling soffit. From the threads that I've read, it seems that I am to design C&C loads per the walls adjacent to the soffit. See thread507-383398: Exterior Suspended Ceilings. Can someone provide a code reference for this? Is the research done by Peter Vickery enough? Also, my soffit runs the length of a building. I want to double check that I should not be considering Eaves/overhang loads as well. The soffit is at height 40ft when the roof is at 321 ft. I am not the building design engineer. Thanks!!!

Limits placed on how many workers can gather at a job site vary, but these physical distancing directives can be overcome with augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) technology. AR and VR can transport key people to any job site, opening up the site and allowing more people to be on-site virtually, without requiring travel or risky physical interaction. Download Now
Data collection has always been crucial for the oil and gas industry, but it once required a team of multiple technicians carrying clipboards and tape measures to perform data recording in the field by hand.
