The University of British Columbia, Department of Civil Engineering CIVL 228 - Introduction to Structural Engineering 2015/16 Winter Term 2 HW1 2 Problem 3: A three-story hotel has interior columns that are spaced 20 ft apart in two perpendicular directions. If the loading on the flat roof is estimated to be 30 lb/ft 2 , determine the live load supported by a typical interior column at (a) the ground floor, and (b) the second floor level. Consider live load for private rooms. Figure 3 Problem 4: Wind blows on the side of the fully enclosed agriculture building located on flat terrain as shown in figure 4. Determine the external pressure acting over the windward wall, the leeward wall and the side walls. Also, what is the internal pressure in the building which acts on the walls? q h can be determined by interpolation. Draw an elevation and a plan view of the building and show the pressures.

Also, what is the internal pressure in the building which acts on the roof? q h and C p can be determined by interpolation. Complete your drawings in problem 4 by showing the wind pressure on the roof.
