I would like to share an interesting interaction will a reputed vendor on piping struts about an year back.(the name I do not wish to disclose for obvious reasons).
With regard to the straight forward question as to whether the load capacities as mentioned in their catalogue is valid for both tension and compression, a prompt reply came that they are applicable in both directions. Subsequently a follow up query on a theoritical case whether a 3m long strut can behave like a shoe support if connected from bottom was put to them. This time the reply was not forthcoming and after followup we came to know that the matter was being discusssed by the specialists. But the final decision has not yet arrived and the catalogue values remain same.
I will leave at this stage and hope the group can very well figure out the reply on the basis of sound engineering judgement and not specious arguments.
