Frank: Thank you for your reply to some of my questions. I also received the WTCA 1-1995 from you and your commentary and have some further comments and questions. 1. What if there isn't a building designer or engineer for a project; i.e. only the contractor is involved, such as for conventional light-frame construction? Who now is responsible for the web bracing? 2. There appears to be no provisions for any submittals to a building department. Many building departments accept the truss data after the fact - not a good idea, but real world. 3. How high of a temperature would affect the long term strength of a truss? 4. What effect would be from the moisture content going from a kiln-dried material of 15% to less than 6%? Would this be a similar situation to use a 20% reduction of the allowable plate value when plates are installed at a 19%, per 4.2 of TPI-85? 5. We have found with the lowering of the moisture content, there is a corresponding reduction of the cross sectional area and therefore the member no longer size no longer conforms to Section 3.4. Any comments? Neil Moore, S.E. ...
