Basis of design

This chapter discusses the basis of design, as covered in Section 2 of EN 1993-1-1 and Section 2 of EN 1990. The following clauses arc addressed Principles of limit state design Basic variables Verification by the partial factor method Design assisted by testing Clause 2.7 Clause 2.2 Clause 2.3 Clause 2.4 Clause 2.5 The general approach of Eurocode 3 is essentially the same as that of BS 5950, being based on limit state principles using partial safety factors. The approach is set down in detail...

Second Order Analysis Eurocode

Typical beam-to-column joints, a Simple joint b Semi-continuous joint, c Rigid joint Clause 5.2 Clause 5.2 explains how a second-order analysis i.e. one in which the effect of deformations significantly altering the member forces or moments or the structural behaviour is explicitly ClauseS.3 allowed for should be conducted. Clause 5.3 deals with the inclusion of geometrical Clause 5.4 imperfections both for the overall structure and for individual members, whilst clause 5.4 covers the...

Ei I

Ich is the in-plane second moment of area of one chord about its own neutral axis h is the in-plane second moment of area of one batten about its own neutral axis . The effective second moment of area L.ff of a battened built-up member is given in clause Clause 6.4.3.1 3 6.4.3.1 3 , and may be taken as where .i is a so-called efficiency factor, taken from Table 6.8 of EN 1993-1-1. The second part of the right-hand side of equation 6.74 , 2 i ch, represents the contribution of the moments of...

Bending Members Eurocode

Class 3 - local buckling prevents attainment of full plastic moment Class 4 - local buckling prevents attainment of yield moment Fig. 5.6. The four behavioural classes of cross-section defined by Eurocode 3 bending. Class 3 cross-scctions are fully effective in pure compression, but local buckling prevents attainment of the full plastic moment in bending bending moment resistance is therefore limited to the elastic yield moment. For Class 4 cross-sections, local buckling occurs in the elastic...

Steel Section Table

Steel Section Table

Selection of buckling curve for a cross-section Table 6.2 of EN 1993-1-I Table 6.5. Selection of buckling curve for a cross-section Table 6.2 of EN 1993-1-I The choice as lo which buckling curve imperfection factor to adopt is dependent upon the geometry and material properties of the cross-section and upon the axis of buckling. The appropriate buckling curvc should be determined from Table 6.5 Table 6.2 of EN 1993-1-1 , which is equivalent to the 'allocation of strut curve' tabic...

Tension Structures

Where the subscript 'min' indicates that the minimum value of Wel or Wcff should be used i.e. the elastic or effective modulus should be based on the extreme fibre that reaches yield first. Example 6.3 cross-section resistance in bending A welded I section is to be designed in bending. The proportions of the section have been selected such that it maybe classified as an effective Class 2 cross-section, as described in Section 6.2.2 of this guide. The chosen section is of grade S275 steel, and...

Durability

This short chapter conccrns the subject of durability and covers the material set out in Section 4 of EN 1993-1-1, with brief reference to EN 1990. Durability may be defined as the ability of a structure to remain fit for its intended or foreseen use throughout its design working life, with an appropriate level of maintenance. For basic durability requirements, Eurocode 3 directs the designer to Section 2.4 of EN 1990, where it is stated that 'the structure shall be designed such that...

Introduction To Eurocode

The material in this introduction relates to the foreword to the European standard EN 1993-1-1, Eurocode 3 Design of Steel Structures, Part 1.1 General Rules and Rules for Buildings. The following aspects are covered Background to the Eurocode programme Status and field of application of Eurocodes National standards implementing Eurocodes Links between Eurocodes and product-harmonized technical specifications ENs and ETAs Additional information specific to EN 1993-1 National Annex for EN...

Eurocodes And Steel Section Axes

A useful listing of the majority of symbols used in EN 1993-1-1 is provided in clause L6. Clause 1.6 Other symbols are defined where they are first introduced in the code. Many of these symbols, especially those with multiple subscripts, will not be familiar to UK designers. However, there is generally good consistency in the use of symbols throughout the Eurocodes, which makes transition between the documents more straightforward. The convention for member axes in Eurocode 3 is not the same as...

For Class 1,2 and 3 cross-sections, the design compression resistance is taken as the gross cross-sectional area multiplied by the nominal material yield strength and divided by the partial factor 7M0, and likewise for Class 4 cross-sections with the exception that effective section properties a_re used in place of the gross properties. In calculating cross-sectional areas for compression resistance, no allowance need be made for fastener holes where fasteners are present except for oversize or...
