Effects of Wind on Billboard Structures

Billboards are large outdoor advertising structures that are found along highways and city centres. Due to their large size and flexibility for creative output,...

Design of Moment-Resisting Column Base Plates

In the design of portal frames and other steel structures, moment-resisting bases can be provided if large lateral forces and bending moments are anticipated....

Structural Design of Signposts and Billboards

As the name implies, signposts are post bearing structures that offer information or guidance to people. They are a prominent feature of our highways,...

P-Delta Analysis

P-delta is a geometric non-linear effect that occurs in structures that are subjected to compressive loads and lateral displacement. Under the action of compressive...

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 loads, floors in...

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 in a structure...

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 to human-structure interaction,...

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 easier to install,...

Free Vibration of Masts

Tall masts are used in a variety of applications such as telecommunication, radio/television broadcasting, supporting lighting fixtures on the highway, raising flags, etc....

Effects of Wind on Different Configurations of Masts

Telecommunication masts or towers are tall structures that are designed for transmission of telecommunication signals or for radio/television broadcasting. Telecom masts are usually made...

Analysis of Moving Load on Cable-Stayed Bridges Using Staad Pro

Stays can be used to support orthotropic bridge decks which consists of continuous girders. The stays which are inclined cables passing over or pinned...

Structural Stability of a Ten-Storey Braced Steel Frame

Structural stability is broadly defined as the capacity of a structure to recover equilibrium. As a topic in structural engineering, it is concerned with...
