Online sessions are open to both SPRA members and non-members, and will assist in developing consistency and accuracy in wind load calculation.
In an attempt to assist in developing consistency and accuracy in wind load calculation, SPRA has devised a set of online (virtual) Wind Load Calculation Protocol (WLCP) sessions. The WLCP sessions are based on SPRA’s publication S11b/19 released towards the end of 2019 and available on the SPRA website.
These sessions are open to both SPRA members and non-SPRA members, as information is relevant to all in flat roofing who carry out flat roof wind load calculations.
The complete set consists of three, two-hour sessions, with a final session including recap and self-assessment, usually carried out over one week. SPRA says there are six places on any set of three sessions, with a maximum of two participants per company at any one session set.
The SPRA WLCP sessions are open to those with experience and knowledge of calculation procedure and involved in this on a day to day basis, plus participants must have been trained in the use of appropriate wind load calculation software.
