RE: PEMB's and lateral deflection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In addition to Code prescribed deflection limits, we use AISC Design
Guide 3 - Serviceability and AISC Engineering Journal, First Quarter,
1993 for serviceability limits, but neither of these is directly for
metal building systems.  The Metal Building Manufacturers Association
(MBMA) has their own manual which (if I remember correctly) has
recommended deflection and sidesway limits.  I no longer have a copy, so
I can't quote it.  But you can order one from MBMA.

Any current metal building systems designer out there who can elaborate?

Subject: PEMB's and lateral deflection

Are there any official industry position statements or
articles on coordinating maximum lateral deflection of
PEMB's with rigid masonry facades?  I am looking for a
little more "oomph" to add into a letter to a future
building owner.
