RE: metal "Z" Channel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There are no standard "C" or "Z" shapes of cold-formed steel.  I recently designed a project with Z purlins and girts.  MBCI ran their own calcs  and provided a similar section, but not exactly the same.  I reviewed the calcs from MBCI and accepted their design.  The next time I have to design a cold-formed project, my purlin & girt design will simply be: 'Provide X" deep purlins and girts.  Design for Code prescribed loads and load combinations as outlined in the Contract Documents.  Submit calculations sealed by an engineer licensed in the state where the project will be located.'  That will save me a substantial amount of time.  After all, why should I spend time to design the purlins & girts and then the MFR. re-do the design?
