Net uplift on joists and joist girders

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Net uplift is the difference between the calculated pressures on the roof
structure and the roof dead loads, right?

And if so, when does it become a problem?  Most of the buildings i've done
so far have been relatively small and the roof dead loads have always
exceeded the pressures i've calculated.
