North Florida FSEA Meeting Notice - RSVP

DATE: Thursday, November 12, 2015

TOPIC: Design of Cold Formed Steel Trusses for Blast Load

SPEAKERS: Mark Weaver, P.E., S.E.

PDH CREDITS: 4.0 PDH credits will be provided

TIME: Sign-in and Breakfast 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
Webinar Presentation 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

AGENDA: Although cold-formed steel (CFS) trusses often represent an economical roof
framing option for buildings with pitched roofs, CFS trusses are not included
as a conventional construction option in the most recent version of
UFC 4-010-01 DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings. For roof
framing systems in Department of Defense (DoD) facilities not able to be
deemed conventional construction, the UFC requires that analysis be
performed to demonstrate the UFC-required level of protection. This session
provides an overview of several analytical methods that can be employed to
compute CFS truss response under blast loading. Both single
degree-of-freedom and transient nonlinear finite element analysis methods
are presented, including attendant assumptions, boundary condition
considerations, and limitations associated with each.

The presentation will also touch on the following topics related to CFS trusses
as a delegated system:
- How to present the blast load information on the drawings
- Preliminary calculations for estimating truss member sizes
- Lessons learned from previous projects
