I was wondering if anyone can lead me in the right direction for some guidleines for structural condition asessment of fire damaged pre-engineered wood roof trusses? I need to either recommend a repair or replacement of several roof trusses in an apartment building. Some sections of the bottom chords and webs were completely burned out and the trusses are currently temporarily scabbed. With that being said, there was no damage at all to the top chords or to the roof sheathing just some minor smoke damage. Otherwise the fire was pretty much contained to a small area maybe 10'-0" x 12'-0".
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
