Standard Cross-Sectional Shapes Refer steel table Design Philosophies • • Allowable Stress Design Method (ASD) Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) A member is selected such that the max stress due to working loads does not exceed an allowable stress. • It is also called elastic design or working stress design. o allowable stress=yield stress/factor of safety o actual stress ⊆ allowable stress LRFD –Load and Resistance Factor Design • • A member is selected such that its factored strength is more than the factored loads. o Σ(loads x L factors) ⊆ resistance x R factor Each load effect (DL, LL, ..)has a different load factor which its value depends on the combination of loads under consideration. Load Factors • The values are based on extensive statistical studies o DL only 1.4D o DL+LL+SL (LL domin.) 1.2D+1.6L+0.5S o DL+LL+SL (SL domin.) 1.2D+0.5L+1.6S o In each combination, one of the effects is considered to be at its “lifetime” max value and the others at their “arbitrary point in time “ values. Resistance Factor • • The resistance factors range in value from 0.75 to 1.0 depending on the type of resistance (tension, bending, compression, ..) These factors account for uncertainties in material properties, design theory, and fabrication and construction practices. History • • • ASD has been the primary method used for steel design since the first AISC specifications was issued in 1923. In 1986, AISC issued the first specification for LRFD. The trend today is toward LRFD method, but ASD is still in use. DESIGN OF STEEL STRUCTURES 3

Advantages of LRFD • It provides a more uniform reliability in all structures subjected to many types of loading conditions. It does not treat DL and LL as equivalent, thereby leading to a more rational approach. • It provides better economy as the DL make up a greater percentage on a given structure. Because DLs are less variable by nature than live loads, a lower load factor is used. This may lead to a reduction in member size and therefore better economy STEEL AS A STRUCTURAL MATERIAL 1.1General Structural steel is a material used for steel construction, which is formed with a specific shape following certain standards of chemical composition and strength. They can also be defined as hot rolled products, with a cross section of special form like angles, channels and beams/joints. There has been an increasing demand for structural steel for construction purposes in the United States and India. Measures are been taken by the structural steel authority for ready availability of structural steel on time for the various projects. The people at every level are working hard to realize the purpose of producing steel on time, like, service centers, producers, fabricators and erectors along with the general contractors, engineers and architects are all working hand in hand. Steel has always been more preferred to concrete because steel offers better tension and compression thus resulting in lighter construction. Usually structural steel uses three dimensional trusses hence making it larger than its concrete counterpart. There are different new techniques which DESIGN OF STEEL STRUCTURES 4

enable the production of a wide range of structures and shapes, the procedures being the following: • High-precision stress analysis • Computerized stress analysis • Innovative jointing The structural steel all over the world pre-dominates the construction scenario. This material has been exhaustively used in various constructions all over the world because of its various specific characteristics that are very much ideally suited for construction. Structural steel is durable and can be well molded to give the desired shape to give an ultimate look to the structure that has been constructed. There is a mention of The Super dome situated in the United States and The Fukuoka Dome of Japan; both speak the unique language of the unique capabilities of the structural steel. 1.2 Types of structural steel: Various types of structural steel sections and their technical specifications are as follows: • Beams • Channels • Angles • Flats DESIGN OF STEEL STRUCTURES 5

1.2.1 Steel Beams Steel Beams is considered to be a structural element which mainly carries load in flexure meaning bending. Usually beams carry vertical gravitational force but are also capable of carrying horizontal loads generally in the case of an earthquake. The mechanism of carrying load in a beam is very unique, like; the load carried by a beam is transferred to walls, columns or girders which in turn transfer the force to the adjacent structural compression members. The joists rest on the beam in light frame constructions. The beams are known by their profile meaning: • The length of the beam • The shape of the cross section • The material used The most commonly found steel beam is the. I beam or the wide flanged beam also known by the name of universal beam or stouter sections as the universal column. Such beams are commonly used in the construction of bridges and steel frame buildings. The most commonly found types of steel beams are varied and they are mentioned below: • I beams • Wide flange beams • HP shape beams Typical characteristics of beams DESIGN OF STEEL STRUCTURES 6
