Eave strut into the portal frame without introducing weak-axis bending into the primary frame columns. To maintain reasonable bracing proportions, the distance from the bottom of the portal frame to the top of the eave strut (the distance X in Fig. 5 to 7 ft. 7 The most certain way to determine the dimensions and clearances of a portal frame is to contact the manufacturer that will be providing the frames. When the dimensions must be known before the manufacturer is selected, as in public bidding work, the following approach is suggested (after Ref.

The foundations and columns designed this way tend to become rather expensive.

Despite their widespread use, these details could use some improvement. The thin unreinforced frame webs are rarely checked for local bending from the concentrated loads applied by bracing and may not survive the real load application.
