re: post-frame building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Jim:
How far are the posts embedded into the ground? If they are driven like piles deep enough, they can develop the lateral capacity via cantilever action. Not sure about all the other pieces of the building...  Also if it is a pure agricultural building, you can usually use an I=0.85 which will reduce your wind pressures some.
 
Do they make glulams now that you can expose to moisture or worse embed in soil?

Andrew
