Thursday’s 6pm ET Zoom study session is titled, “Downspouts” You’ll take the first five minutes of class to answer the question alone, but if you would like to get a head-start on that, here is the assignment.
An architect who designed a 16,400 SF one-story biology research facility’s warehouse receives an RFI because the contractor is unclear how many 3-inch downspouts there should be in the building. The specs suggest one number of downspouts and the drawing elevations suggest another. The architect, who can’t find the original downspout calculations in her notes, needs to recalculate based on the local 100-year hourly rainfall rate of 2.75 inches/hour. Assume that the gutter system will be configured so that an equal portion of the roof drains through each vertical downspout leader. What is the minimum number of downspouts needed?
Please don’t post your answer.
