Design procedure

(a) Calculate the factored load 1.6 x imposed + 1.4 x dead and then calculate the maximum factored bending moments (Mx) and the factored shear forces (Fv). (b) Calculate the second moment of area (I) required to satisfy the deflection limitations described in clause 2.6.2. For simply supported beams, use the method described in clause 4.2 (b). (c) Determine the effective length LB as described in clause 4.3 (c). (d) Choose a trial section and grade of steel and check that the equivalent uniform...

Portal frame ridge

Bolts at levels 1 and 2 resist moment Bolts at level 3 resist shear 28 Portal frame ridge (a) Assume the number and type of bolts required at 1 and 2 (see Fig. 28) to resist the bending moment and locate them to obtain maximum lever arm. (b) Using the distribution of force shown in Fig. 19, calculate the resisting moment. If it is less than the applied moment increase the number or size of bolts. (c) Check the thickness of end plates to resist bending moments caused by the bolt tension provide...

Roof and wall cladding

Although this Manual is concerned with the design of structural steelwork, it is essential at the start of the design to consider the details of the roof and cladding systems to be used, since these have a significant effect on the design of steelwork. The choice of cladding material largely depends on whether the roof is flat or pitched. For the purposes of this Manual, a roof will be considered flat if the roof pitch is less than 6 . It should be noted, however, that roofs with pitches...

Spacing and edge distances

A summary of the requirements is given in Table 19. maximum spacing in unstiffened plate in direction of stress in any environment exposed to corrosion in any direction rolled, machine flame cut or planed edge any end in the direction that the fastener bears In Table 19 t is the thickness of the thinner part d is the nominal bolt diameter D is the hole diameter e is f (215 py)

Column splices ends prepared for contact in bearing

Column Flange

25 Column splice ends prepared for contact in bearing Splices should be designed for full contact bearing to resist the vertical loads. In addition, the following recommendations should be followed a the projection of the flange cover plates beyond the ends of the column members should be equal to the width of the flange of the upper column or 225 mm, whichever is greater b the thickness of the flange cover plates should be half the thickness of the flange of the upper column or 10 mm,...

Web buckling and bearing

Web Buckling Resistance

This check should be carried out when heavy loads or reactions are applied to unstiffened webs, e.g. it applies to beams supported on the bottom flange with the load applied to the top flange to a column supported by a beam to a beam continuous over a column and to web resisting compression forces from haunches in portals. Web buckling and bearing may be checked as described below, the dimensions being shown in Fig. 29. where Z gt , is the length of stiff bearing is as shown on Fig. 29 t is the...

Portal Frame

a Assume the number and type of bolts required at 1 and 2 see Fig. 27 to resist the factored bending moment, and locate them to obtain the maximum lever arm. b Using the force distribution shown in Fig. 19, calculate the resistance moment. If this is less than the applied moment increase the number and or size of bolts. c Check the thickness of the end plate required to resist the bending moments caused by the bolt tension. Double-curvature bending of the plates may be assumed since bolts...
