The repair and modification of metal plate connected wood trusses can be a very complicated subject, because each situation must be analyzed individually. Common situations that require repairs include: damage to the truss from delivery, handling, installation, adverse environments, fire, and manufacturing mistakes. Whatever the reason for a repair, the principles followed are similar. The truss repair must result in a truss that is able to carry all loads intended for the truss. This webinar covers the key concepts involved with a truss repair.
This webinar provides an overview of important information contained in the BCSI booklet. Attend this SBCA Webinar and have a change to win a copy of the Building Component Safety Information Book.
How well do you understand the various load parameters and material adjustment factors used to design metal plate connected wood trusses? Confusion in the field and relying on the software alone can sometimes lead to missed details and inefficient or incorrect designs. Hear from an experienced industry engineer on best practices for designing for the building code to address common design issues.
This webinar is the fifth in a series that will discuss special design situations involving “leg down” trusses, horizontal deflection and scissors trusses, etc. Visit the webinar archives to view parts 1-4 of this series (see July 17, 2018, August 14, 2018, October 9, 2018 & February 5, 2019).
This webinar is a fourth in a series that will discuss special loading situations such as loads from parapet bracing, steeples/cupolas, etc.
This webinar is a third in a series that will discuss the minimum load requirements for the design of trusses that are subject to building code requirements.
This webinar is a second in a series that will discuss the minimum load requirements for the design of trusses that are subject to building code requirements.
This webinar is a first in a series that will discuss the minimum load requirements for the design of trusses that are subject to building code requirements. Part 1 will review some of the common definitions often used when describing loads. It will also cover the basic load combinations prescribed by the building code as well as dead loads and live loads.
