Abstract

Many roof constructions of farm buildings collapsed or were damaged in the winters 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 due to high snow loads. The work presented in this paper aimed at analyzing the causes and propose ways to avoid damages in future. Eighty-five damaged farm buildings were studied and 10 of them more thorough analyzed.
It could be concluded that although very heavy snowfalls, snow was not the main cause of the failures, but revealed errors and shortcomings. The main causes of the collapses were poor design, errors made during erection, and insufficient maintenance.
