Abstract

The article contains comparison and analysis of snow load tunnel tests for three different roofs of sport facilities. Tests were performed in a wind tunnel with boundary layer modelling. Snow precipitation and redistribution tests were performed using powdered polystyrene foam as artificial snow. The results of snow load distributions were presented as dimensionless roof shape factor of snow load for both the precipitation and redistribution simulations.
