Issues of Sloping Roof Design of Multi-Storied Buildings
According to the sloping roof engineering characteristics of multi-storied buildings, summarized from architectural design, structural design and other aspects, the roof forms, slope, structure, drainage organization, ventilation, lighting, lightning protection and other related issues were discussed in this paper. The common problems about changing the plane roof to the sloping roof in the old buildings, such as deal with the water tanks, inner courtyard and solar water heaters of the old buildings were also investigated in this paper. The design methods and ideas of dealing with the sloping roof series’ design problems were proposed. Some reasonable suggestions about structural analysis methods, key parts of the sloping roof, cornice and plinth were given as references for the future selection of sloping roof scheme, design and other aspects of treatment.
