Types of Seismic Control System in Building Structures

Different types of seismic control systems are used in earthquake-resistant design that serves the purpose of reducing the action of earthquake forces on the main structural system. Generally, there are three types of seismic control systems namely passive, ...

Cantilevered Beams and Trusses- Uses and Advantages

A cantilever is a rigid structural member such as beam fixed at one end to a commonly vertical support from which it protrudes. It can also be constructed with trusses or slabs or metal girder. When subjected to a structural load, ...

What is Detailed Design of Structures?

Detailed design, which takes on and develops the approved conceptual design, is a stage where the design is refined and plans are set. The result of the detailed design is the complete and precise physical description of all ...

What is Lateral Torsional Buckling in Beams?

Lateral torsional buckling is a buckling phenomenon observed in unrestrained beams. When a beam subjected to loads results in both lateral displacement and twisting, then it is said to undergo lateral-torsional buckling. More causes ...

What are the Types of Frame Structures?

Different types of frame structures are available that have been used in building construction. They are classified into two major types namely rigid frame structure and braced frame structure. These are further divided into various forms for instance the former is ...

What is Proof Stress? Importance and Determination

Proof stress of a material can be defined as the stress at which the material undergoes plastic deformation. Proof stress is determined as the stress corresponding to 0.2% of strain from the stress-strain curve of the given material. ...

7 Common Design Faults Causing Damage to Concrete

There are number of common design faults that lead to the damage of concrete and hence the capacity of the structural member would be reduced. In adequate structural design, inadequate cover, improper joint detailing, incorrect placement of embedments ...

CFRP Laminates for Shear Strengthening of RC Beams

The use of Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strips for shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beam has gain great success. Structural beams may loss shear capacity due to environmental influences or design and construction errors and hence rehabilitation ...
