I have a client who is requesting that I give them the design wind pressure on a structure so they can space their screws appropriately. Simple enough. However, the table they provided from the manufacturer (attached) requires the designer to "apply appropriate safety factor from the design method used to calculate design load". So I need to also provide them with the appropriate FOS to use as well I am going to be going out on an adventure to find this FOS (hoping the mfr will provide more information), but in case I can't find anything what FOS should be used?
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
