RE: Residential construction-hip beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I design hip beams.

I don't design ridge boards if the roof framing is in compliance with the
Conventional Construction provisions.

||
||I would like to know how engineers address hip beams in residential
||construction. Are they carrying members or similar in nature to ridge
||boards?
||I am of the opinion that they are non-structural and do not
||require to be
||designed.
||
||Any feedback would be appreciated.
||
||Thanks,
