Supported Countries: UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Greece, Belgium, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia
SkyCiv Wind Speed software is a 100% cloud based program, used to calculate the wind speeds and pressures for countries across Europe (including the United Kingdom). There are a number of versions of the software to account for free/paid users and also has an API for added functionality. In this guide we will take a look at an EN 1991 wind load calculation example to calculate the wind speeds and pressures for a gable roof, enclosed building.
