A corbel is a very short structural cantilever member projecting from a wall or a column for the purpose of carrying...

Types of Floor Systems for Steel Framed Buildings

Floors in buildings have a primary function of carrying loads and supporting the activities of the occupants. In addition to carrying...

Vibration Serviceability of Composite Slabs

Vibration analysis of floors is not entirely new in the field of structural engineering. Numerous studies and researches have been devoted...

Design of Composite Slab with Profile Metal Deck

Composite slab with profiled metal decking provides economical solutions for floors of steel framed building systems. This is because they are...

How to Offset Beams in Staad Pro (with video tutorials)

In some cases, structural members are not perfectly connected to each other along their centroidal axis. This can be as a...

Application of Courbon’s Theory in the Analysis of T-Beam Bridge Decks

Courbon’s theory is one of the popular classical methods of analysing slab and beam girder (T-beam) bridges. However, the results obtained from...

Design of Timber Beams

Design of flexural members such as timber beams principally involves consideration of the effects of actions such as bending, deflection, vibration, lateral...

Load Transfer from Slab to Beams – A Comparative Analysis

In the design of reinforced concrete structures, floor loads are usually transferred from slabs to beams, and from the beams, the loads...

Modelling and Analysis of Imperfections in Portal Frames

Equivalent horizontal forces (EHF) are not strictly actions, but are forces that are applied to a frame in combination with other actions...

Analysis of Beams on Elastic Foundation

Introduction When a beam lies on elastic foundation under the action of externally applied loads, the reaction forces of the foundation are proportional at every...

Transfer Structures: Design and Analysis

Transfer structures can be described as structures in which the loads from above (usually from columns or walls) are transferred to other structures (such...

A simpler Approach to the Design of Ground Beams Using Staad Pro

Ground beams are employed in reinforced concrete substructures for a lot of reasons. Ground beams can be differentiated from plinth beams due to a...
