    you need to consult with a structural engineer. These parapet loads are very tricky to calculate. You need to have access to ASCE 7-05 wherein all the equations and factors you need to use are listed.

    Get a copy of the Uniform Building Code.

    It specifies how to calculate wind loads on buildings.

    or See: Minimum Design Loads for Buildings And Other Structures: SEI/ASCE 7-05 (ASCE Standard No. 7-05) (ASCE Standard) (Paperback)

    by Structural Engineering Institute (Other Contributor) "This standard provides minimum load requirements for the design of buildings and other structures that are subject to building code requirements..."

    Check with your local library for these books.....they are expensive.
