Lateral Bracing of Steel Beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Interested in knowing your opinion:
Do you think wood joists hanging from a nailer (using Simpson top-flange
hangers) bolted to the top flange of a W-section beam provide enough
lateral bracing to the top compression flange to qualify it as a
contiuouslly braced beam? Joists occur on one or both sides of the
beam.

Your opinion is highly appreciated. Thank you.
