Features

Calculate design wind loads and snow loads, in a few clicks!

Get Design Wind Speeds

  • Simply enter in the location, zip code or latitude/longitude of your project
  • Instant wind speed result based on ASCE 7-10, AS 1170, NBCC 2015 and EN 1991-1-4
  • Simple options for importance levels, risk categories and more
  • Click and drag pin to calculate wind speeds quickly
  • Auto calculation of Terrain Data, including topography factors
  • Clear elevation profile graphics to show site terrain

wind load software - wind speeds as per ASCE 7-10 and AS 1170 and EN 1991-1-4
wind load software - Wind pressure calculation as per ASCE, AS requirements

Calculate Wind Pressures as per ASCE, AS/NZS, NBCC and EN requirements

Once the wind speed has been calculated (or manually entered by the user) you can then proceed to enter in building information such as the type of structure (buildings (open and closed), sign and billboards, free standing wall etc...) and relevant structure parameters to calculate the wind pressures on your structure. This includes:

  • Full calculation design pressures and elevations on walls and roof
  • Windward, Leeward, Side wall and roof pressures
  • Calculation of pressure for roof and wall components and cladding
  • Clean and professional PDF reporting, with detailed results

Automatic Snow Loads

The SkyCiv load generator will also calculate the design snow loads and snow pressures required to be applied to your model, including:

  • Generate snow loads for your structure - from simple roof case to roof with projections and multilevel roofs
  • ASCE 7-16, NBCC, Eurocode and Australian Standards
  • Snow load cases for: gable, monoslope, and multilevel roofs
  • Simplified and intuitive snow load result figures
  • Viewsnow load contours on the map viewer
  • Use API to get the wind speeds and snow loads of the structure based on address
  • Use API to generate the wind and snow pressures
  • Add multiple load cases for easier calculation
  • Clean and professional PDF reporting, with detailed results

snow load calculator software will calculate snow loads based on asce, nbcc, AS or Eurocode
Get wind pressure calculation results from asce7-10 and as 1170 and apply them directly to your structural analysis model

Apply Directly to your Model

The SkyCiv Wind Load module is completely integrated with SkyCiv Structural 3D, so you can instantly apply your design pressures to your structure. The software will auto calculate the tributary widths and apply DLs quickly and easily. Generate and check your wind load in a few clicks!

  • Simple node entries to apply the wind pressures
  • Dynamic Loading - as the structure changes, the wind loads adjust themselves
  • Auto apply load combinations and factors
  • Auto calculates tributary widths and applies DLs to internal members
  • Edit, Remove or Adjust wind loads at any time
