Section 126.96.36.199 requires non-rigid non-building structures being supported by another structure to be modeled together. Does anyone know the underlying basis for this requirement? In the past suppliers have furnished loads and we have designed the support structures to carry equipment. Now, according to this, everything would have to be modeled together. The equipment suppliers will not give out their computer models, so it will force us out of the support strucutre business.
