The Building Code of Australia May 2009 introduced a requirement that all metal roofing systems used in cyclonic regions shall demonstrate performance to a new standardised cycle test method.Download PDF size: 103 Kb
- Wind Actions on Steel Sheds & Garages
This Guide outlines the principles for determining design wind actions on steel sheds, garages and similar buildings for construction in Australia. It explains how structural designers should apply existing wind design criteria and concepts to the ultimate limit state design of steel sheds falling within a defined scope. It does not replace the Building Code of Australia (BCA), its referenced standards and other engineering texts but should be read in conjunction with them. This guide was compiled for distribution to building certifiers and shed suppliers.Download PDF size: 812 Kb
