This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


This presentation will cover Wind Design Manual Examples 10 through 13. The examples address low-profile tilted panels on flat roofs (Examples 10 and 11) and flush-mounted panels on sloped roofs (Examples 12 and 13), highlighting new requirements in ASCE 7-16 that followed work by SEAOC’s Solar Photovoltaic Systems Committee. The presentation focuses on concepts behind the requirements and how wind loads on rooftop solar panels are affected by building size and shape, and configuration of the solar arrays.

  • Course will award 1.5 hours of continuing education
  • This course is Diamond Review approved in 49 states. New York does not accept hours from recordings.
