Second-Order Effects in Steel Structures

Second-order effects involve the analysis of a structure based on the deformed geometry. In other words, second-order analysis recognizes the deflection...

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...

The Role of Haunches in Portal Frames

Haunches are usually provided at the eaves of rigid portal frames due to a lot of beneficial reasons. They are usually...

New Textbook: Modelling, Analysis, and Design of Overhead Steel Tank Supports

This book has been written to address an area of structural design which is usually neglected by clients, architects, and home...

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...

Structural Design of Encased Steel Columns

Composite sections of concrete and steel have a lot of advantages especially in the structural performance and fire resistance of a building....

Preliminary Plastic Analysis of Portal Frames

Steel portal frames provide economical solution for construction of industrial structures, warehouses, churches or other buildings with large enclosures. The loading scheme on portal...

Simplified Design of Welded Connection to Eurocode 3

In our previous post, we were able to present an example on the design of fillet welds for truss members using two different approaches....

Buckling Amplification Factor for Portal Frames Sensitive to 2nd Order Effects

In order to evaluate the sensitivity of a portal frame to 2nd order effects, the buckling amplification factor αcr has to be calculated. This calculation...

Flexural Buckling of Columns

When structural members are subjected to compressive forces, the members may fail before the compressive resistance (A.fy) is reached. This premature failure is usually...

Basic Information on Fire Protection of Buildings

Fire outbreak is a problem in buildings since it causes loss of human lives, injuries, destruction of properties, and poses serious environmental challenges. Injury and...
