Engineering Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Fellow Engineers:

I have a building in Long Island, NY.

Height=28' (T.O. Roof)
Length=60'
Width=48'
48' Long SHEAR Walls at both ends
Steel Columns W8X31 at 12' OC with WF Spandrel Beams all around
Flat Roof with 20 Gage "B" Deck supported on 48' Long 30K11 Joists at 6' OC.

Is this a good structure considering WIND LOADS?  
How can we increase rigidity of frame, if needed?
