[Webinar] Diaphragm Design of Post-Frame Using DAFI: Engineering Details

For Architects

The course begins with a review of the post-frame building system and identification of technical resources for structural design of post-frame systems then builds on the post-frame structural design principles introduced in Session 3. Structural design protocols for determining the required sidewall post size and for checking the adequacy of a structural diaphragm roof panel for post frame systems both with and without diaphragm action are outlined in detail. 
The session includes structural design calculations for selection of the post size and required diaphragm panel details for a 40 ft wide by 120 ft long by 10 ft eave height post frame system. The session concludes with a direct comparison of post size, diaphragm panel, and shallow post foundation embedment depth requirements for the building with and without diaphragm action
