Temprature load in steel building
Posted by R A on January 14, 2012 at 11:58 AM. | No Comments »

If we provide expansion joint at roof purlins only (at 125 ft lehgth). Do we need to consider temprature load for building. Building is 350 ftx185 ft and 175 ft high industrial building. temprature variation is 80F. With expansion joint loads are very high at vertical braces location and seems unreasonable to design for these loads. Please advice. Thanks
