Re: Rod bracing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
When the temp goes up, it also goes up for the columns and roof members.  
Essentially, everything elongates.  I guess one or two items may have some 
load added/reduced, but it seems to work fine from projects I have seen.

I still prefer simple rod bracing to portals and windposts provided that 
access is not any issue.  Portals and windposts laterally deflect far more 
than rod bracing for the same loading.
