pavilon framing without angle/knee bracing (engineering question)
I am exploring ideas for a pavilion off my back deck. My favorite design ideas are the type where angle/knee bracing is not used, see below:
I'm wondering how engineers/builders typically strengthen these structures against lateral/shear load.
One way might be to anchor the columns deep within the ground in concrete bases (cantilever). This might be most effective however Im not sure I could side load these columns with rim joists supporting the deck surface. Would have to support the deck surface with independent posts/footings I suppose.
I've also seen simpson connectors which could work
Anyone have experience designing something like this?
