This design guide covers the design and construction of staggered truss framing systems, which can be used to frame steel buildings with a floor-to-floor height approximately equal to that of flat-plate concrete construction. Content includes diaphragm design, truss member and connection design, mechanical design considerations, erection considerations and fire protection considerations.
