Abstract

Many of the steel structures i.e. steel truss roof buildings, industrial sheds with roof trusses got damaged due to recent heavy winds during cyclones. So, they need to be retrofitted by using external retrofitting or suitable materials. Many of the trusses are designed for less wind loads in the past. Such existing trusses should be analyzed with relatively high wind loads and should strengthen the failure members with suitable materials.
