Wind-Roof Calculators on the Internet (Wind-RCI)

 

The Wind-Roof Calculators on the Internet (Wind-RCI) are a collection of online calculators to determine the following:

Wind load

Wind load calculators for roof cladding and vegetated roof assembly

This web application determines wind loads for roof cladding and modular vegetated roof assembly design parameters based on the National Building Code of Canada 2015, subsection 4.1.7. The calculated loads are respectively used to determine resistance requirements in accordance with the CSA A123.21 and CSA A123.24 standards from the CSA Group.
