Re: Square Steel Tube Column Got Deflected/Damaged

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

What else happened?  Don't look only at the out-of-plumb column, figure our
what has moved or been damaged to allow it to move.

What moved 1.5" in relation to what?  Is this now the only out-of-plumb
column in the building, or are there other out-of-plumb columns?  Was one of
the connections at either end of the column damaged?  Is the column bent?
If you can jack it back into it's original position, what will have to move
to accomplish that?  Can that be done safely without causing further damage?
When you can answer these questions the understanding of the proper
corrective work will begin to take shape for you.
