Trussed-Braced Upright Frame

Upright frames having two columns similar to the chords of a truss with diagonal and horizontal bracing attached to and located between the columns. The diagonals and horizontals become the web members of the truss (referred to as a vertical truss).

Unbraced Length

Distance between braced points of a member, measured between the centers of gravity of the bracing members.

Vertical Impact Load

Additional downward force added to the beams produced during loading of the rack.

Yield Point 

First stress in a material at which an increase in strain occurs, without an increase in stress, as defined by ASTM.

Yield Strength

Stress at which a material exhibits a specified limiting deviation from the proportionality of stress to strain, as defined by ASTM.
