Abstract:

Variation in design of steel gable frames was found between regions in the US. The assumed explanation is the difference in loading conditions and different industries in each area. Cities of Santa Barbara, CA, Miami, FL, Detroit, MI, and St. Paul, MN were chosen for comparison since they represented a range of loading conditions. Each city has a unique trend of steel gable roof structures. Based on results, designers of these frames don’t appear to be adjusting roof angles for optimum values
