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. Typical cross-sections of ...

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 ...

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 ...

SHEAR CENTRE -WITH EXAMPLES

If a beam is subjected to bending moments and shear force in a plane, other than the plane of geometry, which passes through the centroid of the section, then bending moment will be accompanied by twisting. In order to avoid ...
