TN-L200-09: Roof Framing Anchorage Forces: MWFRS or C&C
This Technical Note defines the two levels of force and discusses the effects of using Component and Cladding (C&C) loads versus Main Wind Force Resisting System (MWFRS) calculated uplift loads. Design examples are provided to indicate the difference in roof-to-wall anchorage force for either type of load. Mainstream reference standards and quotes from field experts are cited when discussing the appropriate levels for calculating the uplift forces. Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs and materials demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use; CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
