We are dealing with an Italian company that manufactures steel structures.
They tell me that their snow loading on these structures is 1500 N/M2 which works out at about 30lbs/ sq foot.
They also quote for wind loading on these structures at 500 N/M2 static wind pressure. Unfortunately in the USA our customers are looking for wind speeds rather than pressure.
How do I convert it ?
