tension only bracing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A colleague of mine was inquiring if there are any standards and
specifications for pre-tensioning of turnbuckle type tie rods used for
bracing of an interior stand alone mezzanine. How is the tensioning applied,
how is the tensioning maintained, i.e. lock nuts?, special inspection? etc.
Are there any references materials available.
