Re: Inverted tapered steel girders

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

Tapered steel girders are quite common in my experience. You didn't say what kind of diaphragm there was. It could be steel with or without lightwt. concrete. It will have to take horizontal shear from wind/seismic.

I assume that when you said the top chord was level you meant it was almost level but with slope for drainage.
