Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1123

Section 2.6.5.2 “Velocity Pressure Coefficient”Question: Shall “z” in the equation be based on mid-height of panels of lattice structures or is it a centroid location of lattice structures panel? For example if the length of panel (Bracing type = X-Brace) is 10 ft then z should be = 5 ft or based on the centroid location.

Per Section 2.6.5.2 the Velocity Pressure Coefficient may be based on the mid-height of the section. The intent was to allow a simplified method for determining wind loads compared to requiring the calculation of the centroid of the section.
