This is like an ag building in which you can do anything you want. However, if the structure is important, I would be cautious. Buckeling of the column is a very undesirable first failure mode. The mass is nothing on a canopy. Why not er on the side of caution and use an R of 1.0? You aren't going to save a significant amount of money by using an R of 3.5 over 1.0. |
