BASIC BUILDING PARAMETER
Building Length is the sum of all bay lengths. For flush end wall, this is measured as the distance
between outside flanges of two end wall columns on opposite end walls. For by-pass end walls,
it is measured as the distance between outer faces of wall grit along two and walls.
Width of a Building is defined as the distance between the outer sides of two eave struts along
two sides of the building.
Height of a building, usually termed as eave height is the height of top outer point of the eave
strut from finished floor.
This defined as the angle between roofline with the horizontal. Any practical roof slope is possible. Most commonly used roof slope is 1:10 & 1:12.
Interior Bay Length:
This is the distance between the center lines of two adjacent interior rigid frames. Most common interior bay lengths are 6m, 7.5m, 8m, & 9m.
End Bay Length:
This is the distance from the center line of first interior rigid frame to outer flange of the adjacent
end column (Flush system) or outside of end wall grit (By / Pass system).
