Structural Analysis Software Works On Mac Wind Snow Load

Wind and Snow Load Software

Use the SkyCiv Load Generator to quickly and easily generate wind and snow loads based on a variety of codes for your projects design criteria. Take advantage of the easy user interface to get through the calculation effectively, then print out the site reports or design load reports to a PDF for later use as a deliverable. Directly apply the design loads from the Load Generator onto your projects 3D model in Structural 3D.

SkyCiv Wind Speed Pressure Calculation AS1170

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

Snow Loads Structural Software SkyCiv

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

SKyCiv Wind Load Integrated US Map

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 structural design 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

wind design calculations for ASCE 7 10, AS1170, Eurocode 1991 and NBCC all include powerful PDF reporting

Powerful PDF Reporting

Need to see the calculations behind the software? SkyCiv's open reporting allows you to view the step by step calculations in a clear, professional PDF report. These clear reports will help you understand exactly what the software is doing, to ensure you always make the correct design decision. Includes references to design codes, clear result output and map/elevation graphics.

The reports also come in a summary report for you to pass to your client or colleagues to check. Get your output in clean and simple format to store with your project documentation.
