Abstract

The AISI Base Test Method was first introduced into the 1996 AISI Specification. Section C3.1.4 of the Specification provides a method for determining the nominal moment strength of a C- or Z- section under gravity load in the plane parallel to the web with the top flange supporting a standing seam roof system. A standing seam roof system is defined as a roof system in which the side laps between the roof panels or deck are arranged in a vertical position above the roof line, and the roof panel system is secured to the purlins by means of concealed hold down clips that are attached to the purlins with mechanical fasteners.
