When designing a hot rolled portal frame shed, we are required to design bracing for longitudinal wind in the form of a simple truss with struts and angle ties etc....EASY!!! Can someone please tell me why no engineering that i have seen for cold formed sheds seem to make allowance for this? No ridge/eave struts whatsoever, just x-bracing etc. Im curious to know why this would be. When I have been in contact with some of these shed manufacturers they confirmed that they never put in any ridge/eave struts in their sheds. The shed suppliers are part of the shed safe program.
Is there any information that anyone might have regarding this?
