Snow on the Roof – Again

Snow on Roof in SolidWorks Simulation
Winter in New England.  We brace again for another  snow storm.  How much pounding can a roof take?  My colleague, Stephen shows how SolidWorks Simulation can be used to determine snow loads on roofs. 

The article is featured on's The Hive, and can be found here.

Keep warm and safe this weekend.  Marie

    Amazing amounts of snow and ice in much of the USA this winter. The New Englanders sure have had their fill of it this year. Hopefully good building standars are in place there by you. Did the study take into consideration if there were any infestations of termites in the wood? The age of the roof? Perhaps there are certain other parameters that might affect the results. But either way, stay safe and warm also with your family.
