I am structurally evaluating the roof framing of a pre-engineered metal building to verify its ability to support the additional weight of a new roof added on top of the existing roof. I have checked the light gauge steel roof purlins for flexure, shear, and deflection. Can anyone tell me where I can find equations, etc. for checking web crippling of the purlins? Thanks.
