Subject: RE: Design Loads on Trellis



Listers:


What are the design loads on a trellis besides the dead load and a live load
of 10 psf (treating it as a ceiling??).  What is the process of designing
for lateral load since it does not have a diaphragm to distribute the load
to the supporting vertical members.

Gautam
