AbstractThis report describes the use of the Rainflow Counting method (RFC) in the development of wind loadsequences for mechanically-attached single-ply PVC and EPDM roofing systems. Using wind tunnelrecords measured on full scale roof components, the RFC method is employed to compute the number ofcycles involved on the unsteady pressure time histories. This report archives the computed number ofcycles for a variety of configurations, and the corresponding load sequences.
