Wind load on monopitch canopy roof EC1-1-4 7.3


This script calculates and applies wind surface load according to EC1-1-4 7.3 on monopitch canopy roofs. The calculation is done separately in an Excel spreadsheet. The Excel spreadsheet calculates the load intensities based on manually given input data. The results are read by Descript, which applies the load on the model if requested. The load intensity calculation works for any valid input, however the load placement works only for surfaces that are in the same plane and within the rectangular load application area defined with the help of the 2. input dialogue.
