Abstract:The systems chosen for analysis as part of this study consisted of six basic roof framing systems, five basic wall systems, and two systems in which wall and roof framing were inseparable. These systems included conventional construction, trussed roof construction, and post-and-beam construction. Where possible and practical, each basic roof framing system was considered for both flat and pitched (5/12 slope) roofs, and each wall system was considered for both the crawl-space and slab-floor conditions. Four framing systems considered were independently stable under lateral (wind) loads.
