Hot cambering vs. cold cambering

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We are bidding a detailing job that has quite a few 60' long W30 and W27 beams cambered 1 1/2".  While the method of cambering has nothing to do with our detailing, the fabricator asked what I knew about cold cambering vs. hot cambering and I had to admit that I don't know much about either.  I would like to find out what there is to know - not only for his benefit but for mine as well.  Is there anyone out there who would like to give me a lesson or point me to a good source on the subject?
Thanks in advance.
