Re: Metal Building Details

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] I totally agree with you Valerie but Mr. Effland from Butler thinks they might. Does anyone know the book Structural Details for Steel Construction by Morton Newman (1996 McGraw Hill)?

That is exactly what I'm looking for but for tapered member rigid frames, steel trusses, purlins, girts, struts, connections, wind rods, tie rods, base plates, stiffeners, bracings, roof and wall panels, gutters, downspouts, etc. All these for the so called "pre-engineered buildings".

I don't mean to know the secrets of a manufacturer, just the very general situations like those in the book I mentioned.

Any suggestions?

I don't know of a building manufacturer that would be
willing to give away their details that they have worked
hard to standardize and verify.

If you are on good terms with a local rep or
manufacturer, you may be able to get a paper copy.
