Bracing Cold-Formed metal constructions: A layout advisor files the present practices relating to bracing cold-formed metal constitution parts and structures. for plenty of engineers the layout of buildings utilizing cold-formed metal is visible as a frightening job. This file seeks to take away a few of the perceived secret via offering with no trouble priceless info for bracing those constructions. Heavy on functions and examples, this e-book comprises layout examples illustrating bracing layout for varied kinds of cold-formed metal constructions, in addition to an in depth record of fundamental reference assets. This document is gifted as a layout advisor and should help the practising engineer in designing cold-formed metal buildings with larger degrees of reliability, defense, and financial system. themes contain: • creation to Bracing layout • Cold-Formed Framing • Cold-Formed metal in steel development structures • Miscellaneous Cold-Formed metal components and structures

Example text

Construction bracing is typically the responsibility of the truss erector, who should ensure that the bracing design is compatible with all the elements of the structure. Bracing used to brace individual elements in the truss and to distribute loads through the structure once construction is complete, is referred to as permanent bracing. This type of bracing must be a part of the system for the life of the structure. Permanent bracing is the responsibility of the truss designer or the Engineer of Record depending on its function.

2. Ground bracing - Bracing spanning from the ground to the truss supporting, no more than six trusses prior to the BRACING COLD-FORMED STEEL STRUCTURES installation of the top chord diagonal bracing. Used to prevent buckling of the truss system. 3. Sway bracing - Diagonal braces utilized during construction. Used to prevent tipping of the trusses. 4. Diagonal bracing - Also known as cross bracing, is bracing placed between lateral braces, in the same plane, and between chords and webs of trusses (LGSEA 2002b).

The base design specification for industrial racks is the Specification for the Design, Testing, and Utilization of Industrial Steel Storage Racks, published by the Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI 2002). The RMI Specification provides for cold-formed steel elements in racks to be designed by the provisions of the AISI Specification (AISI 2004c), as modified by the RMI document. Any engineer considering modifying a rack structure is encouraged to obtain a copy of the RMI document. Figure 4-1 Cold-Formed Steel Industrial Rack (Unarco Material Handling) Bracing for rack systems may be conveniently divided into bracing required for the stability of either individual members or the system, or bracing designed to resist 54 BRACING COLD-FORMED STEEL STRUCTURES lateral forces applied to the completed system, herein referred to as strength bracing.
