Statics of Bending: Shear and Bending Moment Diagrams

Beams are long and slender structural elements, differing from truss elements in that they are called on to support transverse as well as axial loads. Their attachment points can also be more complicated than those of truss elements: ...

Steel Concrete Composite Columns- Analysis and Design

A steel-concrete composite column is a compression member, comprising either a concrete encased hot-rolled steel section or a concrete filled tubular section of hot-rolled steel and is generally used as a load-bearing member in a composite framed structure. ...

Stiffness Method of Structural Analysis

The stiffness method of analysis is the basis of all commercial structural analysis programs. The focus of this tutorial is development of these equations that only take into account bending deformations, i.e., ignore axial member deformations. Within the ...

Seismic Analysis of Liquid-Storage Tanks

Large-capacity ground-supported cylindrical tanks are used to store a variety of liquids, e.g. water for drinking and fire fighting, petroleum, chemicals,and liquefied natural gas. Satisfactory performance of tanks during strong ground shaking is crucial for modern facilities. Tanks ...

Matrix Method of Structural Analysis

Hello friend, how you doing? Well let me tell you about Matrix method of structural analysis.This method is based on the elastic theory, where it can be assumed that most structures behave like complex elastic springs, the ...

DEFLECTIONS IN DETERMINATE TRUSSES

DEFLECTIONS IN DETERMINATE TRUSSES Trusses comprise of members connected through pin joints. Truss members can thus transmit only axial forces (tensile and compressive forces). The basic difference in the behavior of a truss and a beam is that the truss comprises ...

STRUCTURAL EVALUATION PROCESS

STRUCTURAL EVALUATION PROCESS This procedure is applicable for conventionally reinforced cast-in-place concrete, precast-prestressed concrete and post-tensioned cast-in-place concrete. The evaluation of an existing concrete building is usually performed for stability, strength, safety and future expected life. Evaluation of a structure may ...

DESIGN FOR TERRORIST ATTACK FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION

Site planning – Physical layout and physical security aspects are to be considered. Surveillance is to be provided for avoid terrorist attack. By providing access controls and physical barriers. By restricted parking near the building Deep buried structures are safer. Walls ...

CONJUGATE BEAM METHOD

Successive differentiation of deflection equation discloses the following: = Deflection ...
