2303.4.1.5 Truss Member Permanent Bracing
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Where permanent bracing of truss members is required on the truss design drawings, it shall be accomplished by one of the following methods:
- The trusses shall be designed so that the buckling of any individual truss member can be resisted internally by the structure (e.g. buckling member T-bracing, L-bracing, etc.) of the individual truss. The truss individual member buckling reinforcement shall be installed as shown on the truss design drawing or on supplemental truss member buckling reinforcement diagrams provided by the truss designer.
- Permanent bracing shall be installed using standard industry bracing details that conform with generally accepted engineering practice. Individual truss member continuous lateral bracing location(s) shall be shown on the truss design drawing.
