Patterned glass sloped more than 15 degrees (0.26 rad) from vertical in skylights, sunspaces, sloped roofs and other exterior applications shall be designed to resist the most critical of the combinations of loads from Section 2404.2.
For Equations 24-2 and 24-3:
|Fg< 1.0 Fge||(Equation 24-10)|
For Equation 24-4:
|Fg < 0.6Fge||(Equation 24-11)|
|Fg||=||Total load on the glass, as determined by Equations |
24-2, 24-3 or 24-4.
|Fge||=||Nonfactored load from ASTM E 1300. The value for |
patterned glass shall be based on the thinnest part of
the glass. Interpolation between the nonfactored
load charts in ASTM E 1300 shall be permitted.
