Check the ASCE web site for papers. FWIW: The same article reported that a Dade County committee recommended the following changes to the South Florida Building Code requirements for pre-engineered bldgs: 1. elminate cables as tension members 2. use min 24 ga siding 3. provide "lateral and cross-bracing for roofs and walls" (eh?) It would be interesting to know whether these recommendations were codified and, if so, the language that was used. Dave Evans, P.E. TNH, Inc.
