Stochastic process modeling of snow loads has been applied in structural reliability analysis. However, the snow load is usually modeled by a, random variable with a specific distribution (e.g., Lognormal distribution) in combination with a Bernoulli pulse process. In this paper, the Filtered Poisson Process (FPP) is used to model the snow load. Simulated records are compared with weather records of Stampede Pass, WA. and Buffalo, NY, obtained from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The… CONTINUE READING
