Blast Analysis and Design of Cold Formed Steel Roof Trusses

Cold-formed steel roof trusses are one of the most commonly used roof systems in current construction due to their light weight, long-span capabilities, design flexibility, and fast erection times. PEC has developed three analysis approaches for the design of CFS roof trusses that allow us to better work with our clients to develop a solution that meets their specific project design criteria and budget.
