Column Canopy R value

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To those of you who do fuel canopy design or plan review,  Do you agree
with an R=2.2 for a column considered part of the lateral system.  The
column is not embeded in footing like a flag pole nor does the base plate
connection covered by grade beam to provide fixity.  Some may consider the
base plate will provide equivalent fixity??.  the Column in question have a
one inch base plate and assumed to take moment at the base plate by virtue
of anchor bolt arrangement.  What is your take on it?
