Re: Column Base of Industrial Building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Go for a fixed base if your foundation can be designed for the moment.
In case of wind/seismic load along the truss direction, and in case of
crane girder support, this would be mandatory unless you have a double
column system. (Top of column would normally not be a moment connection
with the truss.). In the other direction, pinned connection can be OK,
since there would be many column lines, and you would normally provide
wind bracing.
