First we create a Reference Plane lying on the Hip rafter ridge lines and
defined by the points at the roof peak and two adjacent vertices of the pentagon.
This Reference Plane forms the surface of a pentagonal pyramid 3 high. The edges of the base are 2 × 12 × cos 54° = 14.106846 long. W : Plan Angle at Vertex of Pentagon = 108° DD : Plan Angle = 108° ÷ 2 = 54° Reference Plane Run = 12 × sin 54° = 9.708204 Reference Plane Rise = 3 SS : Reference Plane Pitch Angle = arctan (3 ÷ 9.708204) = 17.172038° R1 : Hip Pitch Angle = 14.036243° 90 – P2 : Sheathing Angle = 55.233354° C5 : Backing Angle = 9.993635° |
The angle on the
Reference Plane
at the peak of the roof, which will substitute for
W
, equals 180° – (2 ×
55.233354°) = 69.533292°
DD : Plan Angle = 69.533292° ÷ 2 = 34.766665° The "Pitch Angle", SS , with respect to the Reference Plane is the difference between the Backing Angle returned by the Hip Rafter calculation and the Backing Angle with respect to the Reference Plane : 37.639917° – 9.993635° = 27.646282° R1 : Valley Pitch Angle = 16.630814° 90 – P2 : Sheathing Angle = 38.083030° C5 : Backing Angle = 22.406606° |
The sum of the Sheathing Angles on the planes lying on the surface of the roof =
22.262638°
+
119.654332°
+
38.083030°
= 180°
The Backing Angle returned by the Valley Rafter calculation equals the Backing Angle returned by the calculation with respect to the Reference Plane ... 22.406606° The sum of the Reference Plane Pitch Angle with respect to level and the Valley Pitch Angle with respect to the Reference Plane equals the Valley Pitch Angle with respect to level: 17.172038° + 16.630814° = 33.802852° |
