>This is a real mundane question, but nobody seems to have the
>answer, and after all, pole buildings are more common than any
>other type of (non-habitable) structure. So I thought you might
>know the answer.
>We are design checking a pole building using 29ga metal sheathing
>Tek-screwed onto 2"x6" nominal joists and purlins. The builder is
>quoting NFBA's report 05-106-1975, but the information we received
>doesn't define the shear panel size, the fastener sizes and spacing,
>the metal thickness and deformation in inches per inch, (to check
>the story drift), or how the "2.5 factor of safety" was arrived at.
>We need to know the allowable shear value (if any) for wind/seismic.
>We tried NFBA, ICBO and the local B.O.'s and nobody has an answer.
>Please e-mail any search links or technical reports you might know
