TYPICAL JOINT DETAILING OF STEEL HOLLOW SECTIONS

JOINT DETAILING OF STEEL HOLLOW SECTIONS Detailing of joints in steel structure is as much important as detailing of main structural members. Ultimately loads from structures are transferred to different structural members through joints. So, a good detailing of joints in ...

TENSION MEMBERS-CROSS-SECTION & BEHAVIOUR

Tension members are considered to be carrying only axial force. Tension members are subjected to uniform stress because their entire cross-section is used for carrying axial forces. Ties, suspenders of cable stayed and suspension bridges, building suspenders hung from central ...

STEEL CONCRETE COMPOSITE BEAMS

Steel concrete composite beams consists of a steel beam over which a reinforced concrete slab is cast with shear connectors. In conventional composite construction, concrete slabs are simply rested over steel beams and supported by them. These two components act ...

GANTRY GIRDER DESIGN BASIS

Overhead travelling cranes are used in factories and workshops to lift heavy materials, equipments, etc and to carry them from one place to the other. These cranes are either hand operated or electrically operated. The crane consists of a bridge ...

BRACED FRAME & MOMENT RESISTING CONNECTION

Braced frames and moment resisting frames are used in building and other structures subjected to lateral loads to provide stability or collapse will occur. This is particularly obvious for very tall structures where the lateral forces are the most important ...

LIMIT STATES OF STEEL DESIGN

For a structural designer, it is most important to ensure that the structures and facilities designed by him are:Fit for their purpose Safe Economical and durable.Thus, safety is most important responsibility of a structural designer. But it is more difficult to say ...

METHODS OF STEEL STRUCTURE DESIGN

Joints in structures have been assumed to behave as either pinned or rigid to render design calculations manageable. In ‘simple design’ the joints are idealised as perfect pins. ‘Continuous design’ assumes that joints are rigid and that no relative rotation ...

Pre – Engineered Metal Buildings – Latest Trends

Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings use a combination of built-up sections, hot rolled sections and cold formed elements which provide the basic steel frame work with a choice of single skin sheeting with added ...
