[HOW TO APPROACH THE STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS VIGNETTE]

May 6, 2012

Questions / Concepts (from areforum.org)

  • What is the maximum span of joists? 30'

  • What is the maximum span of beams? 40'

  • Where should I draw the columns, beams, bearing walls, joist boundaries, and decking boundaries? Draw all elements to the center lines of the base plan walls.

  • Should I use bearing walls and/or columns? All-column and beam solutions are recommended, because there are less rules to remember.

  • Should I include a beam underneath a clerestory window (if the lower roof joists run parallel to the clerestory)? Coach says, "yes." lug-nut says "no." Lengthy discussion here: http://www.areforum.org/forums/showthread.php?t=203291

  • If a rectangular decking section can span over multiple joist areas, should I draw the decking as one or two elements?

Either approach is OK.

  • Should I draw beams continuously, or stop and start the beam at intermediate columns? Either approach is OK. Drawing continuous beams is quicker.

  • Can joists and/or beams extend from an interior space to an exterior "covered entry" space? Coach says "yes"

  • Can I cantilever joists and/or beams?

No, per the vignette's program

**I highly recommend book marking the link to this PDF. I try to keep this up to date as new information is discovered**
