RE: AISI Cold Formed Steel Design

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

Not sure if I’m “another” eluding… since I’ve been getting posts for a few weeks now not in the order they were received… but yes is my answer, both sides of the web is what I meant by double nut.


My comments were based on hot-rolled girts, if you are using cold formed sections, they are probably much thinner and sag rods may not be a good solution unless you are also using washers at the nuts…

It was eluded to by another on this thread that, when connecting the sag rods, you should have a bolt on both faces of the web when connecting the sag rod.  Is this correct?  Also, these sag rods will not be extending to the concrete.  Will this effect the design of these guys as well???
