The enclosure and partition walls that turn this open framework into a useable building are routinely ignored in the structural calculations, except as dead weight. The advantage of this approach is that it has allowed for a coherent mathematically-based engineering approach to building design by separating the infinite complexity of a finished building with all of its parts from that of the primary structural system—the frame.
